doc string for next-history-element is incorrect

The Emacs-Lisp manual doc for next-history-element and
previous-history-element is correct:

  This command replaces the minibuffer contents with the value of the
     Nth more recent history element.

The doc string is, however, incorrect:

  Insert the next element of the minibuffer history into the minibuffer.

Two things are wrong: 1) replaces vs insert, 2) Nth recent vs
next. Wrt #2, the prefix argument should be mentioned.
