VT erratum: VT44:35 _apa_ >> _apo_

I write to inform you about a possible typo in the last issue of
_Vinyar Tengwar_ #44. It's stated in the last paragraph on page 35:
"The preposition _tenna_ 'up to, as far as' (UT:317 n. 43) was deleted,
and _apa_ was emended to _pa_"
Though we are informed that this form _apa_ is found in other of
Tolkien's papers (VT44:26, 36), the text presented in the analysis of
the _Gloria in Excelsis Deo_ in Quenya (called "Text AF I", p. 33)
gives the form _apo_, and so is also cited in the first sentence of the
very same paragraph on page 35: "The phrase as first written was _tenna
yéni apo yéni_".
Should we read, then, "and _apo_ was emended to _pa_" instead of _apa_?
[Arden Smith replies:]
You are quite correct: I should have written _apo_ rather than _apa_.
I added this paragraph in the course of the proofreading process, so my
error slipped through unnoticed by the review panel.
