      This is a good point. I'm not sure why I wrote it differently.

      Which is why I wrote it that way. It's easier to read and seems more
      logical. Of course, if JRRT wrote it differently, then I will too.

      This is correct. I've always tried to stick as close as possible with
      what I've seen JRRT do. Remember, I used to write "to" out like CJRT,
      but changed when I saw JRRT wrote it differently. This is hard though,
      because JRRT didn't write English in a tehta mode that often. There
      are more examples of full modes, at least as far as I know. And
      whenever he did use a tehta mode, he wrote it out phonetically. This
      is hard to read, IMHO.

      Thanks for the comments and feedback! I really appreciate it.
