Hi Russ--I've downloaded and PL'ed this group of recordings--thank you!
Section 84: No problems with the reading of the text itself, but a couple of technical problems for you to correct--
--We are well over the acceptable volume at 97 dB, so please “de-amplify” by -7.5 dB.
--The ending silence is over 10 seconds, so please cut it down to 5 seconds.
--At ~19:30 I hear “Sixty-seven more than twenty
years.” but it should be “Sixty-seven more than thirty
years.” Since the paragraph is about the length of time in business for Negro businesses, maybe we should fix this one.
--At ~4:07 Repeat “…that they faithfully—faithfully carried out.”
--At ~18:20 Repeat “…while the man who teaches him can understand the science—while the man who teaches him can understand the science.”
--At ~0:33 I hear “…by Professor George Washington Carter
” but it should be “…by Professor George Washington Carver
Section 88: PL OK
That was a lot of text to record, and you did a good job. Upload your corrected files and the new track lengths, and then I will take another quick look at them. And do let us know if you have any questions.
NOTE to Devorah:

Also thanks for catching those file names, Lucretia! That one slipped by me.
Actually, I should have noticed and mentioned those file names when I PL'ed the sections. My bad.
And also FYI--the actual track length on Section 88 is 23:10.
Have a good evening.
