Thanks Glen - quite right, I now see a little bit clearer. However, should
'THi' not be instead thought of as the f.sg.dat. definite article
functioning as a substantive noun, and thus working as a relative particle
in this context, rather than, as you have suggested, a relative pronoun
proper (I was under the impression that the fem.sg.dat. rel. pronoun did
indeed differ in form from the fem.sg.dat. article).

Many thanks for you help and patience!
