Critical Apparatus
18.13–24 And . . . backe. 1judson; following l. 36 2judson. Stanzas 3–4 and 5–6 were erroneously transposed in 2judson, possibly an imposition error. The manuscript witnesses share 1judson's arrangement. 3jaggard and benson retain 2judson's error.

Critical Apparatus
18.45 There 1judson; Here mss
Critical Apparatus
18.45 be coningsby, hall; by 1judson; they cornwaleys. OED does not list 'by' as a variant spelling of imperative 'be'; more likely a compositor error.
Critical Apparatus
18.46 When . . . attaint 1judson; beginne when age dothe them cornwaleys; till time shall thee wth age coningsby, hall

Critical Apparatus
18.51 will 1judson; would hall
Critical Apparatus
18.51 ringe my eare cornwaleys; rounde me on th'ere 1judson; wring mine eare coningsby; warme my eare hall. The manuscript versions are all metrically superior to 1judson, which has an extra syllable. Additionally, 'round' (usually glossed here as 'whisper') does not adequately explain the line: why would the speaker worry that the dame will chastise him by whispering in his ear? The two manuscripts roughly contemporary with 2judson each provide a form of 'wring', which could mean 'to contract or contort (the features)' (OED wring, v. 3b), or 'cause anguish or distress to' (5a and b). The 1judson reading may be an unconscious substitution encouraged by the circular nature of a ring.
Critical Apparatus
18.53 wil 1judson; would mss
Critical Apparatus
18.53 blush 1judson; smile hall
Critical Apparatus
18.54 so 1judson; thus mss
