I would agree with you -- and like you, the meaning escapes me entirely.

Many thanks for helping me out with 'Kraefftiger' -- and 'Patro nen',
also, both of which which eluded me completely.
'Litaneyen' I should have guessed -- I'd got most of the pieces of it.

Does your book on Old German handwriting give any explanation for the
differentiation between the "umlauted" (diacritic) u in 'und/auch/zu/auf';
as opposed to that used in 'Creuz'?  I'm very interested in that.  (Makes
it sound almost Swiss!)
