Strange. Can you tell me the context of those two occurrences?

My version of WotW came from the Project Gutemberg archive,
fetched ca. 1998-11-09. The spelling seems to be modern(ized) one.
Could it be abridged? (I count 60201 words, excluding punctuation,
numbers, and a few other things.)

There are several possesives (brother's) in my text -- could they be
your "brothers"?

All the best,
