Transcription Notes:
Shîzilla montrèales = Spizella monteils Ambrosia:- Could also be Spizella monticola - I think it's more likely that given the way he writes his "c" Don't think he meant to have an accent over what looks like an e, think that's actually a c and the accent is a dot over the previous i. Also his p's look very similar to his h's. - in this case it is a p.
