The Sowle to the
Thennea said I thus.
`Who that is put in a narowe sack, boundenb
fast without, he hath not the maystry ne the gouernancec
of the sack, but the sak hath the maystry of hym
whom that he holdeth so enclosid. Now this knowest
thou wel, that heldest me enclosid within the and
kepte me ful derworthly,
that I went nought fro the, ne that I myght not doo
myn owne plesaunced, [48v] so by the is
it that I haue be let fro gracious gouernaunce, and
thou art cause of my forset and al my foly.'
