"Ful dredfully tho gan she stonde stille,
And took it [the letter] nought, but al hir humble chere
Gan for to chaunge, and seyde: Scrit ne bille,
For love of God, that toucheth swich matere,
Ne bring me noon; and also, uncle dere,
To myn estat have more reward, I preye,
Than to his lust; what sholde I more seye?" (p. 493)
