[20 June 1381:]
To all the king's Liege subjects, as well commons and others in the towns of Snothelond and Berlyng as others in Kent. Order, upon petition of John Little of London 'taillour,' to cease from doing him hurt, suffering water to flow to his mill without let as of old time it used to do; as he has shewn the king that he has and ought to have a water mill in Snothelond for service of himself and the people, and that certain of them for envy, striving to take away the profit thereof, are purposing unlawfully to divert the watercourse and utterly destroy the mill pond.By K.
