Michele...nasty bit of violence around the middle of this section. Not as bad as some of those of the past, but Hume can paint some pretty terrible pictures with the restraint of his words.

Glad to be back.

Here's Section 38:

http://upload.librivox.org/share/uploads/arb/historyenglandvolume1c_38_hume.mp3

Length: 26:24

I'm afraid I butchered the French pronunciation. >_< I wish the Scottish had chosen a different ally.

Oh, just as a head's up: There was a sentence late in the text which read: "The hostile attempts which the late king and protector had made against Scotland not being steady, regular, nor pushed to the last extremity, had served only to imitate the nation . . ." Since imitate doesn't make sense in this context, I looked for other sources. On page 19, second main paragraph, of this scan of the text

http://books.google.co.jp/books?id=n10TAAAAQAAJ&printsec=frontcover#v=onepage&q&f=false

the word "irritate" is written instead of "imitate." As "irritate" makes perfect sense in the sentence, I used it instead. I hope I didn't err in this.

Lily: Thank you for section 38. Thank you for fixing those errors in the text. They are called scanos (a play on typos). The first thing I do when a word doesn't make sense is to look closely at the word; in this case you can see that imitate and irritate are the same if the scanner read the m for rr. In your previous section bed and had were scanos. If it appears to be a scano I just fix it. When you need to check the actual text is when a word doesn't seem right but you can't account for it with a scano.

Before I was a Librivox volunteer I volunteered for Distributed Proofers. Fixing scanos was primarily what we did.
