If I amaze[d] your kindness - My Love is my only apology. To the people of "Chillon" - this - is enoug[h] I have met - no othe[rs.] Would you - ask le[ss] for your Queen - M[r] Bowles?
Then - I mistake - [my] scale - To Da[?] 'tis daily - to be gran[ted] and not a "Sunday Su[m] [En]closed - is my [d]efence -
[F]orgive the Gills that ask for Air - if it is harm - to breathe!
To "thank" you - [s]hames my thought!
[Sh]ould you but fail [at] - Sea -Emily.
