Lettering note

Lettering continues: "Je tiendray bon frottez serrez la ligature, picquez asseurement faictes bonne ouverture. Ah! ce bouillon de sang vous a comme surpris, que la phlebotomie espure les espritz, et descharge le sang de grande pourriture, o Dieux la doure main lagreable picquvre, le souvenir m'en faict reuevir le soubzris, qu'un peu de sang tiré me vend fort allegéé, sur tous medicamens J'estime la saignéé, Je me sons retouner en nouvelle vigneur, sy vous recognoissiez, quil me fut necessaire, recommancez le coup; jay bien assez de coeur, J endurerays autant que vous en voudriez faire."
