Here's section 63

From "of the house of lords ..." pdf 405/text 364

There's a typo at 2 min 21 sec, pdf 406/text 365, line 9, col 1: "They were reputed to be knowing among the most knowing ..." I've not recorded the first "knowing"

At 22min 15sec ... in the copy that I'm using, there's a tear at the edge of the page on p368, col 1 which makes a number unreadable. I've checked another copy of the book, where the phrase is clear: "... buttons alone on the waistcoats was worth 6d a piece ..."

Section 63 is 31.02, giving an approximate total so far of 39:06:11

Section 64 starts at "Of the Swag .." top of col 2, pdf 410 / text p369

PL for Section 64:
4:17 repeat of “would” in “would take a volume and a half” p370 1st column, line 11.
5:08 – 5:11 repeat of “sometimes 1s 8d” p370 1st column 2nd para
