I did not see your second errata report until
after I had taken care of the first.
The Latin in footnote 60 has been corrected per your suggestion.
My only exposure to Latin was a class in
high-school 66 years ago, as a requirement for medical school.
I am encouraged that you are continuing your
reading and know you will find hundreds of other
errors in the Latin words. Much of this PG set
was scanned from my 1836 (Harper and Co) edition
with the normal print very small, and the
footnotes half that, well beyond the ability of
scanners and OCR programs of 12 years ago--it was a nightmare of proofing.
If you have the time to jot down in a list the
errors you find along the way, I would be most
grateful to have you send me the list when you
have completed each volume. It will be easier to
simply send me the entire list of errors in an email to this address.
