text: Apr. 20-30. Acre. Frederick, dei gratia Romanorum imperator semper augustus, Ierusalem et Sicilie rex, records that, being resident in his palatium in Acre, frater Hermannus magister domus sancte Marie Theutonicorum in Ierusalem and Iacobus de Amigdala came to his curia and in the presence of the homines of the kingdom of Jerusalem asked him to confirm the agreement made between them, in which Iacobus gave over all the land, held in fief, which he had inherited from his mother, the daughter of the late comes Iozcelinus, for a rent of 6400 Saracen besants, assigned on the cathena and funda of Acre, or on other rents in Acre, which had been given by Frederick to the Hospital of St Mary of the Germans. The casalia of the fief are: Mebilie, given to Iacobus by the Order in exchange for Trefile and castrum novum, called Montfort, which the Order has fortified in the territory of Trefile, and for a garden and a mill that are dependencies of Trefile, Ialim, Tarbuca, Terbasta, Suru, Biaueer, Camessera, Tetramme, Fenes, Tercia, Gianot with a dependent gastina called Hemelie, Get, Cabbera with a gastina called Camelie, Iunite, Blutun and Castellum Regis. Excluded from the sale are those teneuri the Order held before they acquired the lordship and everything it bought or received in eleemosynary grants. Iacobus and his heirs will receive the rent from the revenues of the cathena and funda of Acre, payable in 4 instalments of 1600 besants. If the rent should fail magister Hermannus and his successors and the Order are held to pay Iacobus and his heirs 3200 Saracen besants within 6 months or they will restore all the land to Iacobus. If the 3200 besants are not paid within 20 days the Order will pledge 3 casalia of Arkat, Saffet and Encre. If at the end of six months the debt is still not paid, Iacobus and his heirs can dispose of these 3 casalia as they wish. Frederick confirms under seal the exchange in his curia, in the presence of his fideles.
