I have a primary source whose editor often has editorial comments in his footnotes. There are occasions when I would like to quote these remarks, but I cannot understand how to correctly do this from my Chicago Manual. How do I do this?
Also, my reference Book has two column pages and begins each footnote series at the end of each column on each page. This situation further complicates my dealing with the first question.
Finally, this reference book is the Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers, Second Series, Vol. 8 of 11 volumes. I know that it can be abbreviated, NPNF with a superscript 2, space, and the number indicating the volume followed by the page number (i.e. NPNF2 8:56). I believe this is preceded by the author and the italicized Main Title of the section I am referring to, but where do I include the document title and footnote information?
