3.3.7 Manually Adjusting the System Clock

Description of problem:
Section 3.3.7 - Manualy adjusting system clock
1) Manually spelt wrong in title
2) when typing the commands listed, I get the following:
chrony version 1.28-pre1

password: (tried root password)

After consulting the help file (e.g. chronyc> help) it states:
password [<new-password>] : Set command authentication password
So it seems the password option sets the command auth password, but then it should have set the password so this is confusing.
I am guessing that the password is the one defined in chrony.keys
after re-reviewing the content, I have determined that the only issue here is that I didn't read section 3.2.4, and that the prompt resulting from issuing the chrony command is wrong in section 3.3.7, so that's all that needs to change...
that and the spelling of manually
Thank you for proof reading that section and for raising the bug.
I am going to improve the example as follows:
chrony> password commandkey-password
Where commandkey-password is the command key or password stored in the key file.
Plus attend to spelling and typos.
