To M. son of Gerold, justiciary of Ireland. Richard de Burgo has shown that after starting to come to the king's service beyond seas, where he has served the king laudably, and the king caused letters of protection to be made for him, to wit, that he should be quit of all pleas, except pleas de dote unde nichil habet, and assizes of novel disseisin and darrein presentment, so long as he was with the king beyond seas, nevertheless judgment has been pronounced against him and he has been disseised of certain lands in Ireland by an action of William Croc, who says that he has a right therein by reason of a fine made before the king's justices in Ireland; which the king will not endure. He therefore commands the justiciary to reseise the said Richard of all lands whereof he was disseised, whether by judgment of the court or otherwise, after the date of the said letters of protection, and to maintain him in such seisin as he had on the day on which he was disseised, unless judgment was given by assize of novel disseisin or by plea de dote unde nichil habet.
