Some more uploaded. Just a few final corrections to do now, which I'll do this week.

All done and ready for final PL. The last few in the book tail off a bit in quality, I think, so if you want the best effect I'd save No 4, The Wreck, till last.

I'm back from the briefest of vacations that turned into an illness. I'll catch up as fast as I can. I'm sorry to hear about the problems with the texts. Hopkins deserves better, doesn't he? I wonder if both texts used should be linked in the cataloging.
What? What's that? Why are you shouting?

Happy to take advice on that. Maybe refer to Bartleby for 73 and 74 only? Sorry to hear you've been ill.

35 PL OK!

There are discrepancies in 36 (The Leaden Echo and the Golden Echo.) At 1:00, there is a line missing: 'No there's none...' At 4:15 or so you read 'but an eyelash, but the least lash...' but the archive text reads 'not an eyelash, not the least lash...' (Or am I mishearing?)

37 and 38 PL OK!

39. At 1:31 or so you add a word. The line is "Were I come" rather than "Were I to come."

40-48 PL OK!

49. Is not the brother's name pronounced differently?

Many thanks for that!

I've corrected the last line in 39, and have re-uploaded for spot PL. I'll fix 36 and 49 shortly.

In 36, I do read "not an eyelash, not the least lash...". Think that may just be some oddity in my British accent!

Haha! Your accent is lovely. It makes my reading of Hopkins sound pretty hollow in comparison.

54-57 and 59-63 PL OK!

For 64, it's a small thing perhaps, but I hear three syllables in the first two 'words.' I assume they are to be 'tee-vo, chee-vo.'

65-71 PL OK!

72. At 3:58 or so, the wording is '... longer leaving it to float.'
