Algy, very tardy thank you for the PL.

Note to all, I'll be delayed in continuing this project but will definitely continue it. For the time being I'll need to park it. I will check in periodically so no one has to wonder if it's abandoned.

Thanks so much,
Eva

Mem.—Wednesday—
I think that mem. is actually an abbreviation of memorandum
Dur, yeah. Voice match was really awful on this one so I opted to read the letter again. Could you please possibly PL this from scratch?

Since I'm not doing word perfect, and stink at edits, I'd prefer to leave these as they are. I'll try for more accuracy going forward though, as I know you're very faithful to the text and I agree.

Thanks a lot,

Algy, thanks for the PL :clap:

I used dictionary.com for the Margate pronunciation, and they have [mahr'-git] as the first pronunciation for the Kent location.
http://www.dictionary.com/browse/margate

Do you think this is wrong? :hmm: They are not the strongest on locations and I knew this was an area I would run into trouble (place names).

Does anyone care to weigh in if the mahr'-git pronunciation is wrong? I would have liked to use Oxford (Living) to decide this one but they only gave the pronunciation for a fish. :hmm: I'll check that Learning dictionary in the future, I didn't know about that one.

I think mahr-git is just wrong. I'll re-record those parts, thank you for catching it! :thumbs:
