Actour: minder

Say I, as long as the heir is a little child, he does not differ from a subordinate, when he is a lord of all, but he is under tutors and minders, until the time determined by his father.

Galatians 4:3
Wycliffe volume 4, page 402

Early Version
I seye forsothe, how moche tyme the eyr is litil, he dyuersith no thing fro a seruaunt, whanne he is lord of alle; but he is vndir tutouris and actouris, ’til to the tyme determyned of the fadir.

Later Version
But Y seie, as long tyme as the eir is a litil child, he dyuersith no thing fro a seruaunt, whanne he is lord of alle thingis; but he is vndur keperis and tutoris, in to the tyme determyned of the fadir.

The enclosed piece-by-piece analysis works a criterion to embrace the epsilon, predicate structure, vowel contour, phonemics, person reference in abstract thought, and altogether stylistic coherence. The result supports doubt on fascicle originality. There always is the simple question as well: do we believe Emily Dickinson tried to tell about very exceptional Bees, Ears, or Birds, so peculiar that you write them with capital letters?
