and to the peril of their patients, by reason they cannot be conveniently attended. It may therefore please Your most excellent Majesty (enactment that the physicians in London shall be discharged to bear certain offices there. 32. Henry VIII.
De dotibus mulierum ubi aliqui custodes haereditatum maritorum suorum custodias habent ex dono vel concessione regis, sive custodes rem petitam teneant, sive haeredes dictorum tenementorum vocentur ad warrentum, si excipiant, quod sine rege respondere non possint, non, ideo supersedeatur, quin in loquela praedicta, prout justum fuerit procedatur.
