" He never sleepe one night, there as I doe another, Till that Kound Table I see ;                                          35
Sir Marramiles and Sir Tristeram, Fellowes that ye shall bee.
" Weele be clad in palmers weede,
Five palmers we will bee;
There is noe outlandish man will us abide,               so
Nor will us come nye."

In many a strange country.
Then they travelled a litle further,
They saw a battle new sett;                                          u
" Now, by my faith," saies noble King Arthur,
{Half a page is here torn, away.]
But when he came that castle to,
And to the palace gate,
Soe ready was ther a proud porter,
And met him soone therat.                                            «
