'Go, get me hither paper, ink, and pen: (1290)

Yet save that labour, for I have them here. (1291)

What should I say? One of my husband's men (1292)

Bid thou be ready, by and by, to bear (1293)

A letter to my lord, my love, my dear:
Bid him with speed prepare to carry it; (1295)

The cause craves haste, and it will soon be writ.'
