And how ȝe shal saue ȝow-self · þeL.2.39: The original scribe inserted the <e> of þe after initial copying, no doubt in response to the corrector's <+> in the right margin, which has since been partially erased. Sauter bereth witnesseL.2.39: A blurred red line under the final <e> of witnesse and a blue dot at the end of the line are offset from the initial on the facing leaf.

¶ Witeth and witnesseth · þat wonieth vpon þis ertheL.2.77: Each of the first three lines of the group is clearly marked with a punctus in brown ink in the left margin. Below and extending through L.2.94 in the left margin is a bracket in very light black ink.
