You were, of course, right.

This is the fixed chapter 6 -- 88+.

Sorry for the delay.

Ooh, that sounds painful! Don't worry about us... we'll still be here. I imagine you can't sit for long to record. I had a hip replacement last August, but had a month's warning, so was able to get loads of recording done beforehand and sit in my comfy chair to edit!

Hello Lynnet,

I am so sorry for not meeting the 2 month deadline I was busy working on other projects.

Anyways, I have finished recording chapter 7 and have now uploaded it to the server.

Here it is https://librivox.org/uploads/lynnet/africanmillionaire_07_allen_128kp.mp3

The length of the recording is 40 minutes and 31 seconds.

In addition, it is also ready for PL.

Please let me know if you have any questions or any other changes need to be made to it.

Thanks!

Sincerely,

Micfairy252

Thank you. Hope you have a smooth recovery... probably safer at home than in a hospital environment right now.

Section 7
At ~ .20, please add "An African Millionaire, chapter 7, The Arrest of the Colonel"

~15:20 stumble "to the detective"
~16:35 repeat "was too tall by half an inch"
~17:21 stumble "I will divulge"
~19:17 stumble "in a Tyrolese costume. "
~19:30 repeats "portrait of a lady with a most fetching squint...with a most fetching squint.We answered with one voice...We answered with one voice,"
~20:30 repeat "and I hope... and I hope before long"
~21:05 stumble "spoil"
~22:05 stumble "we... we received"
~22:19 long pause
~23:18 long pause
~25:05 I hear "mediated" should be "meditated"
~25:30 repeat "was that of an hotel,"
~25:40 Unclear/repeat "and inquired of the landlord whether our man was at home"
~26:08 M. le Colonel should be read as Monsieur Le Colonel
~26:40 long pause
~30:25 M. le Colonel should be read as Monsieur Le Colonel
~34:20 stumble "apocryphal"
~40:15 Please delete "End of An African Millionaire: Episodes in the Life of the Illustrious Colonel Clay, by Grant Allen. " -- this only goes after the last chapter 8-)

This looks a lot, but they are all simple fixes and stumbles and repeats are easily cut. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mLdJsoGQc9c I suggest you begin at the end and work backwards, to keep the times correct (just a little 'pro' tip... the voice of experience)

There are no technical issues to be concerned about.

If you could do these edits ASAP and re-upload using the same file name, that would be great
