Quakede as quikke thynge & al biquascheR.18.252: R's biquasche is an alpha variant; beta shows a preterite
form, biquasht. Though many C manuscripts agree with
beta on the tense of the verb (= toquasched), the best X family copies, as
well as some in the P family, read toquasch, agreeing with alpha.
