Section 6 has just been uploaded to:

http://upload.librivox.org/share/uploads/km/hypatia_06_kingsley.mp3

16:34 minutes
15.90 MB.

This was recorded while I had a rather rough throat and I believe it shows it a few places, but I consider that overall the recording is within acceptable parameters. If the DPL is of a different opinion, I shall of course be pleased to re-record.

Since I am game for more, and it appears this project has some way to go, please assign me Sections 10 and 11 (Chapter 7, Parts 1 and 2 respectively). These recordings should be back in about four weeks.

I had some reason to listen to my file for this a few days ago and I was struck by just how fast I was going. It made me feel short of breath. I changed the tempo in Audacity and reuploaded the file. New file length is 9:15. I haven't made any other changes, so it should still be PL OK.

So little space, so much to say.

Section 21

@ 2:19 And that second relation, motherly rather than
sisterly,
had bound Philammon with a golden chain to the wondrous
maid of Alexandria
Repeat

@ 3:27 And when at times she entered
for a moment the library, where he sat writing, or passed him on her
way to the Museum,

Here you say where she sat

@ 8:14 self-restraint, and deep earnestness which be had
acquired under the discipline of the Laura, his Greek character was
developing itself
in all its quickness, subtlety, and versatility,
until he seemed to Hypatia some young Titan,

Repeat

Section 22

@ 00:42 But one day, at the very time at which this history reopens, she was tempted to speak more openly to her pupil than she yet had done.
Here I think you have edited out part of the word reopens
@ 1:58
'Oh, as much as a living body differs from a dead one.
Here you have used the word offers
@ 5:33 ,—a point, as Euclid defines it, whereof neither parts nor magnitude can be predicated,—
Here you have said pre dictated
@ 10:47 for the analogy of all material nature tells us that it is suffering—of a foreign body, like a thorn within the flesh, subsisting within His own substance?
Here you have used the word subsiding

@ 20:06 'But this opal—worth, oh, worth ten thousand gold pieces—in exchange for that paltry broken thing not worth one?'
'I am not a dealer, like you, and have not yet learnt to value things by their money price. It that agate had been worth money, I would never have accepted it.'

Here the word ring and memory have been used

@ 20:49 But for the sake of the talisman engraven on
that agate, if for no other reason, I cannot give it up.'
Missed part of sentence

@ 21:30 Hypatia took the tempting bait, and examined it with more curiosity
than she would have wished to confess; while the old woman went on—

Here you say exclaimed

@ 22:23 And the talisman has told her whether Heraclian has lost or won Rome by this time, and whether she is to be the mother of a new dynasty of Ptolemies, or to die a virgin, which the Four Angels avert!

Here you say whatever

@ 22:51
'Childish superstitions! Ha! ha! ha!'said the old woman, as she turned to go, with obeisances more lowly than ever.
Here you say lonely
