Additional comments:

Angle brackets in evidence indicate deleted passage restored by source editor; see p.101 n.8 for suggestion of Antoine Bret, Memoires sur la vie de Mademoiselle de Lenclos as text read, and observation that 'Claire at some later date crossed out references to reading that might be considered improper.'
