Concerning the due payment of the king's majesty's customs

Forasmuch as our sovereign lord's customs are one of the parts of the patrimony of his crown and sundry good and profitable acts have been made, namely, against them having goods out of the realm uncustomed, and how the custom shall remain with the king for his living, which acts and all other acts made toward his majesty's customs aforesaid, his highness, with advice of his estates, ratifies and approves and ordains the same to have full effect and execution in time coming, with this addition: that a table be delivered to all customs officers for taking up and bringing in of our sovereign lord's customs, ordaining that every sack of wool shall contain but 24 stones, every 100 skins, 120, and every dozen of cloth, 12 ells only.
