Here are verses 6 and 7, and the first two lines of verse 8.

Verses 6 - 8 copy
The only corrections are to verse 7.

Line 1
““Aye?” says he, wot’s happened to you” replaced by “Aye, what’s happened now?” he quavered

(There is also a second “says he” crossed out later in the line.)

Line 3
“as” replaced by “like”

Line 4
“Then” replaced by “And”

(There is another word crossed out here – it could be “hobbled”, but it is difficult to be sure – and replaced by “toddled”.)
