To George de Latymer knight. Order upon his allegiance to be before the king in person on the morrow of St. Hilary next in order to answer touching what shall be laid against him; as to his great displeasure the king is informed that disputes have arisen between the countess of Westmerland, Richard earl of Salisbury and the said George on the one part and Ralph earl of Westmerland, John Neville and Thomas Neville knights on the other part, whereby have ensued slaughter and ruin of the people and great number of other mischiefs, in contempt of the king and breach of the peace and to the disturbance of the people, and his will is to take precaution against such hurt and peril.

Kenilworth castle.
To Thomas West, Oliver Groos, William Rokewode, Thomas Wetherby and Richard Brandoun customers in the port of Great Jernemuth, Ralph Happeley and William Herman in the port of Bishops Lenne and Richard Gogge the king's receiver of the duchy of Lancastre, commissioners appointed for a certain purveyance of corn for the king's stock. Order, upon the instant petition of the mayor and commonalty of London, to suffer the persons hereinafter mentioned to bring to London all the corn by them bought and purveyed, not troubling them in aught, if reasonable provision may be made for the king's stock and enough kept to serve his subjects in Norffolk and Suffolk, both for their food and for sowing their lands; as the said petition shews that long before the said commission certain persons of the city of London did buy and purvey divers sorts of corn in those counties to be brought to London for victualling thereof, and they fear that the commissioners may hinder them in bringing the same out of those counties, praying the king's consideration for the present dearness and scarcity of corn, and the multitude of inhabitants of the said city and of them that daily flock thither.
