Here is section 10, at 28:59:

https://librivox.org/uploads/lynnet/lifeofaphilosopher_10_babbage_128kb.mp3

There was one section with a lot of zeros and nines where I was not sure how to read it. You'll hear :wink: If you want each zero to be read out individually, let me know.
Cheers,
Ava.

Thank you. I’m curious... did you say “a lot of zeros” or “a very big number”? :hmm:

I see that there is yet one section unassigned. May I claim section: 23 Electioneering Experience; and help close out this volume?
Respectfully,

It was something like
00000 00000 00000 00231
- 00000 00000 00000 00522
----------------------------------
99999 99999 99999 99309

I said "five zeros, five zeros, five zeros, zero zero two three one" etc. and "five nines, five nines..."

The point is to make sure the machine "knows" when it switches over to negative numbers, and this "borrowing" from a 1 that is very, very far to the left hand side is how you do it.
It's easy to see and write, but hard to read out loud :?: If you have other suggestions, I'm happy to change it.
Cheers,
Ava.

I'm not sure about the sound quality. My laptop doesn't seem to be recording consistently at the moment.
