For seke menne. Ale bre þus make þou schalle, With grotes and safroune and good ale. Take playd water with hony, I wote, For water gruel made with grote. Melle white brede in dysshes aboute, Powre in wellyd mylke, with outen doute, Þat called is mylke soppys in serves For Satyrday at ny3t, so have blys. 3et sugurt soppes I nyl for3ete, Þou tost shyves of gode manchete, Enbene hom with wyne on both syde. þenne Sawce hom with sugur ino3he I kenne.
