A wafrer wol ye wite · and serue many lordes
a wafrere wole þe G.14.229: The grammatical construction makes it clear that the correct reading is "will ye" (as all manuscripts except G),
but the G scribe appears to have misread this as wole þe (i.e he reads the second element as either "thee" or "the"). The G scribe's practice is to use superscript letters after
<þ> and inline letters after <y>. See note to G.3.118. wytt & seruve many lordes

margin to R13.242.
