Lettering note

Lettering continues: "me semble si fort en bon poinct, que volontiers pour mon pourpoinct je voudrois l'avoir aempeschee, a cette gentille nourric, coiffee de son bauolet, quand ondeburoit troubler son laict, feroit bon luy vendre service. Ct pour cette jeune servente, qui chauffe la couche a l'enfant, qui luy vouldroit en faire autant, le croy quelle seroit contente. L'entens à faire le mesnage, et sur tout a dresser un lict, mais, pour, y prendre son desavict, je fais mieux encor cet ouurage."
