Interpreting thermochemical output

Dear Firefly Users,

Please, I am trying to get the total energy, enthalpy, gibbs free energy of my system. I compute the thermochemical properties of simple molecule "H2O" but I am confused because I obtained two thermochemical output as follows:

How do I get the total E, H, G ? I suppose the E should be the FINAL ENERGY which is -75.5859597519 in the output file. What does "Q" and "LN Q" stands for ?

Thanks.
