  • Scribal correction seems to have occurred in several stages. In fol. 36r/13, crossing out line in black is visible on 'to the', underneath the red crossing line. Part of the red crossing line is erased so that it reads 'seyde the kynge to'. In 82r/23, 'olde' was expuncted in black first, then crossed out in red ink.
