And the said bailiffs are to retain the goods of such persons by writing indented between them and are to answer therefor to the king if they are convicted of felony : and if any of them are convicted of other trespasses, they are to remain under arrest with their goods, until they have made reasonable amends to the plaintiffs. If the masters of ships fail to arrest (concelent darester) such felons or malefactors, or will not deliver them to the warden (au gardein) and to the bailiffs, they shall have the justice that belongs to such manner of misdemeanour. If the lords, to whom the ships belong, receive the masters of the said ships, who conceal such felonies and trespasses, knowing their concealment, without arresting them or informing the above warden or bailiffs and are convicted thereof, the goods of such receivers shall be forfeited to the king. The said warden, bailiffs, and provosts shall make inquests four times a year, to wit, at the time of vintage (en temps de vendenges), at the time of racking (en temps de Rek,) at the salting season and the herring season, touching trespasses committed and arising between them anywhere during the whole year.
