And for þat I can and knowe cald am I mens . thouȝteR.15.26:
R's thouȝte is a unique reading among the B
copies and has the appearance of a scribal gloss erroneously incorporated into the text. F's
line terminal ofte then would represent a fairly typical example of that
tradition's tendency toward "smoothing" earlier mistakes. However that may be, thouȝte also appears at this point in a large number of C
manuscripts of both major families, including XYcP2TH2Ch (of the X group) and PEcQZWaGcNcFcCa (of the P group); so if it is an error, its
source is a manuscript prior to Bx in the line of transmission.
