My lorde KYNGE RICHARDE doth poste

My fayre reeders, I be overjoyed to see my deare KYNGE RICHARD hað posted a comment on my lytel site of blogge. Ich be humbled but eek fearfulle thatte he be agilt by the smale mater of my dedicacioun of a werke to my lorde Henrye.

Yet I wiste he hað been kynde unto me afore nowe and ich did see hym in London thys week-ende. And I ween ich even made him jolyf with a lytel jape thatte I thogt of that did make the whole of his companye laughen, to wit:
Wiste not, wante not
Yt did make my week-ende to see my lorde the KYNGE laugh atte my smale jape.

Maistre gowere, be nat so reddie as to believe that whan a manne laugheth he laugheth with thee and notte atte thee.

The dedicacioun of thine werke to myn lord of Lancastre meseemeth hathe an odoure of fysshe. Myn legistres shall into thys looke.
