Pro Ricardo de la Leie. Rex omnibus baillivis et fidelibus suis presentes litteras inspecturis, salutem. Sciatis quod perdonavimus Ricardo de la Leie fugam quam fecit pro morte Ricardi le Macun, unde rettatus fuit. Et ideo volumus et precipimus quod idem Ricardus firmam pacem nostram inde habeat; ita quod pacem faciat cum parentibus predicti Ricardi le Macun et quod stet recto, si quis inde versus eum loqui voluerit. Et in hujus rei testimonium etc. Teste comite, apud Merleberg, vij die Januarii, anno regni nostri secundo.

[IRHB translation:]
For Richard de la Leie. The king greets all baillifs and his faithfuls present to inspect his letters. Know that we pardon Richard de la Leie the flight that he made for the death of Richard le Macun of which he was accused. And we therefore will and order that this Richard have our steadfast peace, provided that he make his peace with the parents of the aforesaid Richard le Macun and that he stand trial, if any of them should wish to speak against him. And testimony in this matter etc. Witness the count, at Marlborough, the seventh day of January, in the second year of our reign.[1]
