Manu vetere

[M]y penne is worn, myn hand wery and not stedfast, myn eyn dimed with over moche looking on whit paper, and my corage not so prone and redy to laboure as hit hath been, and … age crepeth on me dayly and feebleth all the bodye.

(Epilogue by William Caxton, in: Raoul Lefèvre: The Recuyell of the Historyes of Troye, Bruges 1473?; cited as per Oscar Ogg: The 26 Letters, New York 1962, p. 227)
