Script Commentary

Script is pre-Caroline minuscule, with many cursive elements, and rather ungainly: the bows of c and e occasionally have a tag to the left; d and q after o are open; l is often broken; superior a in ligature is frequent; the ti ligature is used indifferently for the soft and the hard sound.
