Commentary[edit]

Written in Margaret Douglas's hand, this comment remains unattributed and is unique to this manuscript.

A drawing of, possibly, an incomplete coat-of-arms appears above the comment, but part of the illustration was removed by the tear. Also, a doodle appears below Douglas's phrase and may depict an inverted coat-of-arms covered with various flourishes.
