      Ne take noon hede to brynge togidere þe parties of þe boon þat is to-broken or dislocate, til viij. daies ben goon in þe wyntir, & v. in þe somer; for þanne it schal make quytture, and be sikir from swellynge; & þanne brynge togidere þe brynkis eiþer þe disiuncture after þe techynge þat schal be seid in þe chapitle of algebra.
      Do not even consider bringing together the two parts of the bone which is broken or dislocated until eight days (if it is Winter) or five days (if it is Summer) have passed; for if you do, it will seep puss and swell, worsening its condition. Then [After the time has passed] bring together the ends of the bones (or, if it is a dislocation, the disjointed bones themselves) in accordance with the technique that shall be detailed in the chapter on bone-setting.
