Note on editorial method

For the sake of convenience, the text has been divided into short sections, each of which has been assigned a serial number printed in bold type. The Latin text of each section is followed by notes, where these are necessary, printed in smaller type, and then by a translation. Emendations are printed in italic and enclosed in squared brackets when they are conjectural. Punctuation has been freely added, but capital letters have been used sparingly. Contractions have been extended wherever possible but the customary abbreviations for units of money have been retained (that is li., s., d., ob., and m.). Three dots indicate portions of the document which are illegible.
