Well, if it wasn't for you, we wouldn't be anywhere close to the end of this book!

Are you up for the next two chapters? The second one is split into two sections - and they are all long sections. Let me know!

Thanks, Larry!

There are a few PL Notes

Repeat @26:13 - "Then on the parties of heroes of Elizabethian..."
Repeat @ 34-37 till 34:47 - starting with "second"
Repeat @ 39.34 till 39:43 - "The answer always is that he" (repeats twice)

There are a few recordings of Chesterton on youtube - search for Chesterton voice or Chesterton radio - that tends to bring them up.

Here is one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TTRuShBw4Xc
And a short little video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K4wUYTMcXBE

Oh, that is embarrassing! I guess my concentration gave out towards the end.
Anyhow I'v made the corrections and gave you NEW time stamps above to make it easier for you to spot PL.

Thanks for those links!
Just fantastic.

I'll share these with my younger brother, who was all set to do his doctoral thesis on Chesterton and had done most of the research, before he joined the ranks of the ABT (all but thesis). But, he has been a superb college professor of English for many years now.

Thanks, Larry ~ it is PL OK now!

Hey, if someone doesn't leave in some mistakes for me to catch once in a while, I get paranoid that I am missing them! :lol:

Seriously though, I have been listening to a non-librivox audiobook lately, and I keep catching the mistakes/repeats. Not too many of them considering how long it is, but you would think they would be more careful about catching them in a commercial recording. :D Honestly, there have been more mistakes in it than in some of the very long books that I have proof listened to here. So I think in general our ratio is pretty good!

There were at least a couple more youtube videos if you want to look for them! :D

Oh, and here is a recording of Belloc, since you are currently running a Belloc project: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cmCTfnNvafo
