per .O.7.187: The marginal addition is divided after þe, so that it appears as two lines. Any text that may have followed has been lost to cropping; it would have appeared as a
continuation of the first marginal line, since per appears alone on the second with blank space following it. It would seem to have been a version of the first missing line
following l. 186, "Now haþ þe pope power pardon to graunte."
¶ For-thi I rede ȝow thenkeR.7.199:
Alpha was corrupt here and R presumably mirrors its reading with ȝow
thenke; cf. beta's presumptively authentic ȝow renkes. F offers
a typical job of smoothing alpha's error: ȝow alle. Cx agrees with beta. þat riche ben on þis erthe .
