¶ Quod Piers hareweþ alle þat konneþ kynde wit . by conseil of þise doctoursW.19.318: The right margin is cropped. Other manuscripts here read doctours.
¶ Quod peris harweþ alle that conneþ kynde wyttHm.19.318-319: In response to a corrupt Bx, CrHm alone create two lines here. Other B manuscripts, with some variations, read Quod Piers harweth alle þat kunneth kynde witte bi conseille of þis doctours. Hm alone, editing to provide an a-verse, adds by rede and by counseyl in place of bi conseille of the other B manuscripts, and Hm alone reads þese fowr where all other B manuscripts have þis in order to fill out the b-verse. Unlike Hm, Cr prints only By counsel of these doctours. The now lost B manuscript available for creation of the C text was superior to Bx, reading (again, with some variations):
And so doth vices vertues forthy quod peres
Harweth alle þat conneth kynde wit bi consail of this doctours.
¶ Quod piers harweth al þat konne kyndly wit · by conseil of þis doctours
quod pyers harowethe all þat can kyndlye wytt / by couvnseyle off doctours
Quod Peers harweth alle þat knowen witt / be conseyl of þis doctour.
