											Torvesens Enke 1720.</q> Below, Árni first has written: <q>Ur Num. 9.</q>, which he then corrected
									to <q>Ur Num. 10.</q>
									The AM-slip shows a now horizontal folding line, on which stitching holes are visible. The slip has been repaired and the 
									holes were filled using Japanese paper. <!-- the same kind of slip (size, stitching line, chain-lines and folding line) is found in AM 521 a 4to and AM 224 fol. -->
