Can anyone read what it says in top left in margin. clerical error ????

The mother and father appear on birth cert, different names, I can't find a wedding certificate. Is it being corrected to illigitimate, or from?

Cheers Mike

It says, "Clerical Error col one" and then a signature or initials. The writer seems to be authorising the crossing-out in Column one after the word "John" and explaining it as a mistake.
