Hi Patrick,
When you post the sect link in the MW, please indicate in the status box "Ready for PL".
After the changes have been made, indicate in the status box "ready for spot PL".
I am still considering your question for the intro for sect 2.

sect 3 The Court of King James - Part 2
PL notes:
1- Beginning, I hear sect 2, s/b sect "3"
2-end of sect 2 s/b end of sect 3

Your reading is great. :thumbs:

I see what you mean about the numbering. I was thinking of a "section" as the separate parts of the original text. If we use the concept of section to mean the separate recording tracks, then either it doesn't need the Part number as well, or I should say the title and part number. On balance I think the latter would be clearer and more consistent.

I've re-done the first file in this section accordingly. Does it make sense that way round?

We must have our wires crossed, sect 2 was PL OK.

At the beginning & the end, you referred to
Sect 3, 4, 5 "as sect 2". You need to change them to:

Sect 3
sect 4
Sect 5

The opening intro also needs to change to allow for the separate parts of the longer elements.

Thank you kindly! I was actually fighting a cough for some of those, and then my old microphone was misbehaving a bit (got a new one now)

Sections 12 and 13 are up.

Now that I've nearly finished, I've revised the summary, and done a CD cover, but I think it would also be helpful to put up a downloadable PDF "cast list" of the people whose names he throws in as though his audience would know who they all are - the original readers no doubt would have done, but today's would need help.

Revised summary:
Gossipy exposés of shenanigans at the heart of government are nothing new. The author, Sir Anthony Weldon (1583–1648), was a courtier of years of experience and standing; his account of court intrigues around the Stuart Kings James I (1603-1625) and Charles I (1625-1649) was written seemingly in the tense period leading up to the English Civil War in the 1640s, and for a private readership (the printed text was not published until several years into the Commonwealth period, when the monarchy had been abolished, and he himself had died).

This text, known as the source for the summing up of James I as "the wisest fool in Christendom", gives us an insider's partisan, at times pruriently scurrilous, account of James's diplomatic manoeuvres to maintain peace with Spain and avoid involvement in foreign wars, and of the jockeying for position between English courtiers and those brought from Scotland by James, the factional intrigues and rivalries, the trading of office and revenues, and the rise and fall of favourites and ministers. Here are the details of how an ambassador flouted diplomatic niceties to retrieve his jewelled hat, how and why Sir Walter Raleigh was condemned to death, the murder of Sir Thomas Overbury, and some salaciously Puritan-shocking licentiousness, as well as the young Prince Charles's unauthorised venture to the Spanish court in search of a wife. Curiously, perhaps, there is no mention of the Gunpowder Plot, which is perhaps the one event of this time most often remembered to this day.

For the reign of Charles I, Weldon sets the scene for the descent into civil war in 1641-42, recounting the high-handed behaviour of successive favourites and ministers through Charles's and their efforts to rule without Parliament, and their increasing exactions of taxes and duties. Conservative Parliamentarians like Weldon held these to be illegal and oppressive measures and a flagrant disregard of the precedents set by the custom and practice of Queen Elizabeth I and her advisers.

A supplementary list of personalities and events referred to in the text is available to download. (Summary by Patrick Wallace)
