Þat hippen abouteO.15.548: OC2 alone lack in before englond. englond to halewe mennes auteris
And nauȝt to huppe aboute here in englande forto halwe autres .R.15.569: Although it begins in harmony with R, F's version of this line is unique in
several ways (& nowht to hoppe here & þeere / for halwen awteris).
Beta differs from R in three respects: (1) where R's opening reads And
nauȝt to, beta has Þat; (2) beta omits R's here later in the a-verse but (3) adds mennes after halwe in the b-verse.
& nowht to hoppe here & þeere / for halwen awteris.F.11.483: The scribe originally wrote nawteris and corrected it to awteris.F.11.483: F's reading is unique. R reads "And nauȝt to huppe aboute here in englande for to halwe autres." Beta witnesses
have "That huppe aboute in Engelond to halwe mennes Auteres."
