MS 39. Literal transcription misspellings are left intact, ax denotes illegible word, italicized items are my own comments for clarification. Please note that in some instances the letter e has been replaced with the letter o, the letter s has been replaced with the letter f, and when a word begins with the letter f, it is doubled (example: the word forty is noted as fforty,) as was the custom at that time TG.
