The corrector expands the contraction symbols for spiritus (p. 75, 1. 28 K.), dominum (p. 76, 1. 26), spiritus (p. 78, 1. 4), spiritus (p. 82, 1. 15), sanctum (p. 85, 1. 12), etc., etc., just as we should be driven to correct the wrong use of a small initial letter or a large in similar English words This MS., I should add, comes from Stavelot; while its twin-brother of Ferriéres (now in the Berne Library, No. 366), tolerates the wrong use of the contractions in these passages.
