The following conventions were employed when transcribing the document: the line spacing, spelling, capitalization, emphasis, and punctuation follow the manuscript; reconstructions of suspensions are in italics; ‘u’ and ‘v’ have been rendered according to the document rather than to modern usage. Elided words (‘thesaid’) have been separated for the sake of comprehension. Squared brackets indicate editorial interventions.
This transcription was undertaken as part of the ‘Cabot Project’ (University of Bristol, 2009-) funded by the British Academy (SG100194) and Gretchen Bauta, a private Canadian benefactor.
