Footnote added to anc.00175 (LG 1855 review)

User Kelly Scott Franklin pointed out a typo in this review, and upon investigation I discovered that the problem was in the original rather than in our transcription. After discussing the long-standing ambiguity in our presentation of <sic> (i.e., that users cannot be sure, in materials for which we present no page images, whether typos are in the original or in our transcription) Ken, Kevin and I decided we should include a footnote. This accords with the protocol that we follow for journalism transcriptions. I have now added the note for the review that (re-)raised this issue.
