From the Making of Fire Emblem: 25 Years of Development Secrets 25th Anniversary art book comes some dialogue during planning stages. This one is a glimpse of dialogue from Mostyn, Princess Caeda’s father. Look for subtle differences between how this turned out compared to the final game. Some of these were translated with and by VincentASM of serenesforest.net. Find his in-depth analysis on the matter here!
These are found on Page 324.
You can find these scans and much more from this book on the compilation post here.
As you can imagine, the process of doing all this (scanning, editing, translating in some cases, etc) took a lot of time, and I am unemployed… so if you like what I did, then…

The original scan (by VincentASM) is below. The translation follows in plain text. Note how all the text is without kanji, which can be great for elementary readers, but terrible for trying to get the right translations.
Prince Marth, I see you have finally decided to do battle with Grust; I will no longer hold you back.
Although I would love to join you, my body sadly isn’t what it used to be, so please keep my daughter Caeda by your side.
While my child won’t be much help, I’m sure her bodyguard Ogma will become your confidant and a powerful ally.
Well, Prince, you should first head to Aurelis where the army led by Archanea’s Princess Nyna are fighting and add to their forces.
The text in the surrounding areas above state where it takes place in the game and gives guidelines. (Chapter 1, Mostyn’s portrait goes here, etc)
