Thē he asked me again when he came to me, and howe he came to me and what and howe longe he talked with me, and whether he wēt from me, I tolde him he came to me aboute euensōgtime and that one brought him vnto my chamber dore, whō I know not and that he tolde me he woulde go to wodstocke for some veneson to make mery with all this shroftide, and that he wolde haue borowed a hat, and a paire of high shoes, of me but I had none such to lend him, and then he straight wēt his way from me but whether I know nat. All these my sayenges the scribe wrote in a paper boke.

Then was hee that brought maister Garet vnto my chamber brought before me and caused to declar what maister Garet saide vnto me at his comminge to my chamber but I saide plainely I harde him say no such thinge for I thought my naye to be as good as his yea, seing it was to ridd and deliuer my godly brother out of trouble & pearill of his life.
