For to save venysone fro restyng. Take venesone when hit is new slayn, And cover hit alle with ferne playn Þat no wynde enter þer to. And whenne þou hast covered hit so, Lede hit home, selor hit lay Þat wynde ne sone ne ughe hit may. Dresse hit wele and wassh hit clene, Sythen, lay hit in water alle by dene, Þer in be half a day to lye. Þenne take hit oute on flore to drye, Þenne after take salt a quantité. Boyle hit in clene water so fre, And kele hit, þat he be bot lue, And þerin wasshe þy venesone true, And let hit lye þerin thre dayes And thre ny3htes, by any kyns wayes. Then take hit oute of þat water, Salt hit wyth drye salt, alle in fere. And do hit in a barel þenne. Þe barel staf ful as I þe kenne, Stop wele þo hede for wynde and sone, For hit wylle payre þo venysone.
