To the sheriff of Kent. Strict order at his peril, as he would save him harmless toward the king, to cause proclamation to be made on behalf of the king, that no man of whatsoever estate or condition shall henceforward make or procure congregations or unlawful assemblies upon any pretence, or take part therein, under pain of forfeiting life and limb etc.; and order to arrest and bring before the king and council any whom he may hereafter find so doing, taking with him if need be the whole posse comitatus, that by advice of the council the king may deal as ought to be done according to law and the custom of the realm for their punishment; as certain subjects of the realm, who with great number of others have held and do hold divers opinions contrary to the catholic faith, in these days commonly called lollards, have now of late been taken and brought before the king in person, and by willing confession informed him that they and those others did purpose to make such assemblies in divers parts of the realm, for that he as a true christian prince, and as by his oath he is bound to do, has made him a party against them and their opinions, to the destruction not only of the catholic faith but of his person and the estate of the lords and great men of the realm spiritual and temporal; and the king's will is to make provision against their malice, as he is bound to do. By K.
