And for þe lawdeR.14.323: This variant array shows a truly puzzling
configuration of attestation, with C offering no help because of an
extensive revision to fix the confusion found in B witnesses. R's lawde agrees with the beta copies CY but makes no obvious sense; F uniquely
reads lawe, which is probably no more than a typical piece of that
scribe's speculative reconstruction. The most trustworthy beta copies (LMCrWHm) all agree on
land, which has the advantage of making ordinary sense, but Kane and
Donaldson prefer lewde, the reading of GOC2B.
