      I must mention also the latin word 'Manes' that refers to the spirits of
      the dead... It seems that Tolkien had this word in mind...



      [Pat has asked me to note that in his previous post of today in this thread,
      the words 'spirited of one departed' should, of course, read 'spirit of one
      departed'. CFH]
