knowledge himself to be bound to the said William in the said sum JI two hundred pounds of lawful money of Great Bruain, to be paid 19 the said William, whenever after the said Charles should be therelo required; nevertheless the said Charles (although often required) hath not paid to the said William the said sum of two hundred pounds, nor any part thereof, but hitherto altogether hath refused, and doch still refuse to render ihe same; wherefore he saith that he is injured, and

hath damage :o the value of ten pounds: and thereupon he brings Profert in

suit, (and good pruus). And he brings here into Court the writing obligatory aforesaid; which testifies the debt aforesaid in form aforesaid; the date whereof is the day and year before mentioned. AND the aforesaid Charles, by Richard Price his attorney, comes and defends the force and injury when (and where it shall behove him,) and craves

and of none effect, or else to be and remain in full force and virtue." Imparlance. Which being read and heard, the said Charles prays leave to imparl

therein here until the octave of the Holy Triniiy; and it is granted Continuance. unto him. The same day is given to the said William Burton, here,

&c. At which day, to wil, on the octave of the Holy Trinity, here

come as well the said William Burton as the said Charles Long, by [*xxiii] their attorneys aforesaid : and hereupon the said William *prays that Plea; No the said Charles may answer to his writ and count aforesaid. AND such award. the aforesaid Charles defends the force and injury, when, &c. and

saith, that the said William ought not to have or maintain his said action against him; because he saith, that the said David Stiles and Henry Bacon, the arbitrators beforenamed in the said condition, did not make any such award, arbitrament, order, rule, judgment, final end, or determination, of or in the premises above specified in the said condition, on or before the first day of January, in the condition aforesaid above mentioned, according to the form and effect of the said condition: and this he is ready to verify: Wherefore he prays judgment,

Richard Morris, or Wý.ham, in the county of Berks, the said arbitra- N3. III. ters undertook the charge of the award, arbitrameni, order, rule, judg. rent, finai end, and determination aforesaid, of and in the premises specified in the condition aforesaid; and then and there made and published their award by word of mouth in manner and form following, that is to say, the said arbitrators did award, order, and adjudge, that he the said Charles Long should forth with pay to the said William Burton the sum of seventy-five pounds, and that ihereupon all differences between them at the time of the making the said writing ot ligatory should finally cease and determine. And the said William further saith, that although he afterwards, to wil, on the sixth day of January, in the year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and fifty-five, at Banbury aforesaid, requested the said Charles to pay to him the said William the said seventy-five pounds, yet (by protestation that the said Protestanden Charles hath not stood io, obeyed, observed, fulfilled, or kept any part of the said award, which by him the said Charles ought to have been stood to, obeyed, observed, fulfilled, and kep!,) for further plea therein he saith, thai the said Charles the said seventy-five pounds to the said William hath not hitherto paid; and this he is ready to verify. Wherefore he prays judgment, and his debt aforesaid, together with bis damages occasioned by the detention of the said debt, to be adjudged unto him, &c. And the aforesaid Charles saith, that the plea afore. Demurros. said, by him the said William in manner and form aforesaid above in his replication pleaded, and the matter in the same contained, are in no wise sufficient in law for the said William to have or maintain his [ *xxiv) action aforesaid thereupon against him the said Charles; to which the said Charles hath no necessity, neither is he obliged by the law of the land, in any manner to answer; and this he is ready to verify. Wherefore, for want of a sufficieat replication in this behalf

, the said Charles, as aforesaid, prays judgment, and that the aforesaid William may be precluded from having his action aforesaid thereupon against him, &c. And the said Charles, according to the form of the statute Causes of in that case made and provided, shows to the court here the causes of demurrer. demurrer following: to wit, that it doth not appear, by the replication aforesaid, that the said arbitrators made the same award in the presence of two credible witnesses on or before the said first day of January, as they ought to have done, according to the form and effect of the condition aforesaid; and that the replication aforesaid is uncertain, insufficient, and wants form. And the aforesaid William saith, that the plea Joinder ta aforesaid by him the said William in manner and form aforesaid above demurrer. in bis replication pleaded, and the matter in the same contained, are good and sufficient in law for the said William to have and maintain the said action of him the said William thereupon against the said Charles; which said plea, and the matter therein contained, the said William is rendy to verify and prove as the court shall award : and because the aforesaid Charles hath not answered to that plea, nor hath he hitherto in any manner denied the same, the said William as before prays judgment, and his debt aforesaid, logether with his damages occasioned by the detention of that debi, to be adjudged unto him, &c. AND BECAUSE the justices here will advise themselves of and upon the Continuanco premises before they give judgment thereupon, a day is thereupon given io the parties aforesaid here, until the Morrow of All Souls, to hear their judgment thereupon, for that the said justices here are not yet advised thereof. At which day here come as well the said Charles as the said William, by their said attornies; and because the said justices tere will farther advise themselves of and upon the premises before they give judgment thereupon, a day is farther given to the parties a.foresaid here until the octave of Saint Hilary, to hear their judgment thereupon, for that the said justices here are not yet advised thereof.
