A Note on Transcription

In transcribing the text, we have preserved Matthew Paris’s color contrast (we used black and red to represent Matthew Paris’s brown and red ink). We have expanded abbreviations and, in cases where these are uncommon or slightly conjectural, we have noted the expansion with brackets.
