L.5.255-258: A bracket, supplied by a later hand, extends from this line through the following three lines in the left margin. Lenestow euere lordes · for loue of her mayntenaunce
L........entestow euere lordus for loue of hire mainteinaunce
Lendest thou euer lordis for loue of her meinteinaunce ?
¶ Lendestow euere lordes · for loue of hir maintenaunce
Lenedest þow euere lordes for loue of here mayntenance .
A design is scratched in drypoint in the left margin beside these lines; its shape is that of
three pillars of approximately the same length, a vertical pillar with two supporting pillars
on its left side; the higher supporting pillar is a flat horizontal, joining the vertical
midway along its length, the lower one running diagonally upwards to join the other two at
the same point. The effect is almost that of a reversed capital <K>.
¶ Lentyst þou euere Lordis quod he for love of Meyntenaunce.
