The king pardons all ill will, malice, and trespasses that occurred as a result of the disputes between the king and his subjects. He will have his bishops issue official letters containing the text of the charter.
The king finishes the charter by making a broad statement of forgiveness and pardon for anyone who might have felt negative feelings about him. This attempt to forgive and forget seems formal. It does not reflect the king's subsequent actions since soon after the charter was signed he went back on his word quite dramatically. In any case, copies of the document were distributed, as promised by the king.
