Egburg. [Letter to Boniface, Saint, 716-720] in S.Bonifacii et Lulli Epistolae ep.13

[Letter from (Abbess?) Egburg to Saint Boniface ]
Egburg describes her affection for Boniface and her need for his sympathy and guidance, after the death of her brother, his friend, and separation from her sister who may be living happily as a recluse in Rome, while she is bound by law of the flesh, lege carnali, weighed down by her sins, presumably means simply that she is still alive.
