Then the King caused a proclamation to be made that all the commons of the country who were still in London should come to Smithfield to meet him there and so they did And when the King and his train had arrived there they turned into the Eastern meadow in front of St Bartholomews which is a house of canons and the commons arrayed themselves on the west side in great battles At this moment the Mayor of London William Walworth came up and the King bade him go to the commons and make their chieftain come to him And when he was summoned by the Mayor by the name of Wat Tighler of Maidstone he came to the King with great confidence mounted on a little horse that the commons might see him And he dismounted holding in his hand a dagger which he had taken from another man and when he had dismounted he half bent his knee and then took the King by the hand and shook his arm forcibly and roughly saying to him Brother be of good comfort and joyful for you shall have in the fortnight that is to come praise from the commons even more than you have yet had and we shall be good companions And the King said to Walter Why will you not go back to your own country But the other answered with a great oath that neither he nor his fellows would depart until they had got their charter such as they wished to have it and had certain points rehearsed and added to their charter which they wished to demand And he said in a threatening fashion that the lords of the realm would rue it bitterly if these points were not settled to their pleasure Then the King asked him what were the points which he wished to have revised and he should have them freely without contradiction written out
