Thank you for that explanation. I thought that might be the case, but wanted
to make sure. I agree that PRDH has done a wonderful job. So did the
priests, as a matter of fact. I've found only one other transcriptions at
PRDH that had an error such as this. I also continue to be amazed over how
many of the records have been preserved.
