Hi aniroo,

Section 6 is up:

17:49

https://librivox.org/uploads/knotyouraveragejo/historyofourowntimesvol3_06_mccarthy_128kb.mp3

The British historian, J.R. Seeley, famously wrote of the British Empire that "We seem to have conquered and peopled half the world in a fit of absence of mind."

Justin McCarthy debunks this.

Thank you, too, for working on a holiday weekend!

Where possible, I try to get the pronunciation in the original languages Hindi, Marathi, Bengali, etc.
