'h' with tail-stroke turned to the right is used as an upper case letter and also in the first two lines of the text.

the single example of long 'r' on this folio.
the single example of modern 'r' also.
'z'-shaped 'r' used on almost every occasion and in every position.
upper case 'R'.
kidney-shaped 's' always used in final positions. Here the word is the last word in the line and the 's' has a descending vertical tag. The scribe appears to observe a rule whereby he only uses a tag if the word is in final position in the line.
this 's' looks like an upper case letter and frequently stands above the letters which follow. It is only used in initial position and looks like a variant of the 6-shaped 's'. The scribe appears to have a slightly different version for upper case as in version 4.
long 's' is also used both initially and medially. The characteristic shape of 's' and 'f' is of a fat body for the stem with tapering ends.
upper case 'S' at the beginning of a line.
'w' when used initially almost always has a curved lead-in stroke.
