Variant spelling of CUMOMS

-Ether 9:19a

PA: cumoms

-Ether 9:19b

P: comoms

A: cumoms

Discussion: For some reason Cowdery wrote the second instance as comoms. If we assume that the first occurrence is spelled correctly, as the 1830 typesetter did, comoms is a scribal error

Summary: Skousen accepts cumoms
