one marginal alteration initialled by way of approval
Explanation:
at the end of legal documents there is often a list of words erased, lines crossed out etc.
Cross-reference might cover it too. Basically a word or note has been written in the margin in amendment of the text, with initials juxtaposed to demonstrate that the alteration has been approved.

The list of alterations, crossings out specifies the number of such alterations. Therefore \'one alteration\' rather than \'an alteration\' in this instance
