Commentary

8 Leave a comment on paragraph 8 1 Written in Margaret Douglas’ hand, this poem remains unattributed and is unique to this manuscript. The speaker offers to be available for “counseling” a lover in need. Margaret’s writing for the first stanza on “ther ys no cure ffor care off miyd” (41r) appears so faint on the page that it becomes almost unreadable.
