ROBIN HOOD AND THE MONK

The sothe as I yow say; The next way to Notyngham
To take, he yede the way.
Whan John came to Notyngham
The yatis were sparred ychon i John callid up the porter,
He answerid sone anon.
' What is the cause,' seid Litull John, ' Thou sparris the yates so fast ?'—
' Because of Robyn Hode,' seid the porter, ' In depe prison is cast.
' John and Moch and Wyll Scathlok,
Ffor sothe as I yow say, Thei slew oure men upon our wallis,
And sawten us every day.'
Litull John spyrred after the Schereff,
And sone he hym fonde ; He oppyned the Kyngus prive seell,
And gaf hym in his honde.
Whan the Scheref saw the Kyngus seell,
He did of his hode anon : ' Wher is the munke that bare the letturs ?'
He seid to Litull John.
