13 and 14 are PL OK. That was definitely one of the funniest car chases I've read! Very considerate of Bill not to kill anyone along the way :D

15/16 PL OK. Looking forward to seeing what Flick gets up to in America.

Chapter 14 is ready.
For a romantic hero, Bill is a little awkward at times.

Poor Bill, he really is clueless. When is Judson going to make his fortune selling this miracle medicine? Who'd have thought not drinking could be so good for you!

17 is PL OK. 18 has a repeat at 12:29.

Okay, I fixed section 18. Section 19 is now ready, too.

I am a little worried that Bill gave the editor of Society Spice photographs of Alice!

Chocolate and oranges anyone? 18 is now ok. The volume in 19 drops quite sharply from 12:40 to 12:55.

Chapter 15 and16 are ready. I'll take a look at Chapter 14 soon. The problem was probably where I was trying to figure out how to talk like some one from Minnesota.

Oh, uh. We have a problem. The source text for this book is missing pages 278 and 279, which possibly contain some crucial information about the possibly dastardly [but perhaps innocent?] Mr. Slingsby. Any suggestions?
