[Please find below the Latin bit….I have attempted to copy the letters for you. I know that some are definitely not correct! Some letters are more of less identical, eg st/f and all of the vowels. The “–“ indicates where the scribe has used an abbreviation. Although the three abbreviations on the first line are all “m”s and come at the end of the words, note that these abbreviations are often not at the ends of the words. Good luck with it! NB: I have NOT charged you for this!!]
