                    <p>This electronic version was produced at the Centre for Literary and Linguistic Computing at the University of Newcastle  
                            by keyboarding from a microfilm printout of an early printed version. 
                            It was originally in a format devised in the Centre, with reference panels at the beginning of each line, known as "LILAC". 
                            It was subsequently converted by an automated process to a TEI XML format.
                            It lacks the speaker tags provided in the copytext. Contractions and variant spellings of function words have been silently regularised. 
                            The text thus lacks information about the original forms of many words and expressions.</p>
