Hi,
Section 16 is PL OK! :clap:

Caroline's life is getting much more limited as she ages. At least she can still write and receive letters.

Yes, it's amazing how she's managed to last so long, considering the number of illnesses she's had!

I've PL'ed this and there a couple of glitches:

At 13:20 near repeat “I could not persuade myself to encounter a regular parting with you,”

At 14:50 repeat in
“Mde. Knipping will at my death have to deliver a sealed packet to Dr. Groskopff



This is a very long final chapter. Well read. :)

Miss Herschel at such an advanced age keeping up a correspondence, how rare for that time. :)

Hi,
Section 20 is PL OK! :clap:

And we're nearing the end of this book. Wonderful readings of this different letters.
I'm gratified Caroline has her memories and intellect intact as she ages.
