descriptions of their other contents. Also note that I say about the
first of these pages that it "was deleted with a single vertical stroke."
From this fact and comparison with the other editorial notes the
reader can infer the note that begins "_Fingon : Turgon_ ?" (p. 113),
and also the notes on _Felagund_ near the top of page 118, are
the ones from the rejected NN page that also has the first of the
notes on _Idril_. The other notes on _Turgon_ and _Fingon_ are the
ones that are from the same NN page as the second note on _Idril_.
