If Philippa be charged by law to pay the 100 marks contained in the king’s letters patent to the lady Isabel for the sustenance of the said Edmund yearly, or any other charge thereof made by the king or the lady Isabel since the earl’s death, and Isabel or her council being warned by Philippa and her council do not discharge the same, it shall be allowed at the next term of payment. She shall not be liable for waste done in the premises in the time of the said lady Isabel, and if the ministers of Isabel have taken any of the issues of the said lands since the date of these presents the same shall be delivered to the ministers of Philippa or allowed to her in her first payment.
