Sorry for the delay in progress. I came across more pages that were illegible in all the online copies of the book. I contacted my friend who has a physical copy of the novel, but it took some time for her to send me the necessary pages.

When I started the project, there was a Google docs copy of the book that was a different scan of the book from the Yale Library edition used by Internet archive. It looked like I could switch between the two scans and avoid the problem I'm running into right now. However some time after I started reading, Google docs switched to the Yale Library scan -- which is a better copy overall, but has these nearly illegible pages. So, sorry about this.

Chapter 10 PL notes

at 4:25 a paragraph is missing from the recording, first paragraph on page 72 ("Netta had given us [...] for her dejection")
at current 6:30 a repetition of "that it was worth a good licking to me"
21:30 a short skip "...in secret, and when she recovers..."


Chapter 11 PL OK!

Well, the second volume of this novel continues to be full of unexpected problems.

There were more blurred pages, but I eventually decided to press on instead of waiting for more pages from my friend. Then Chapter 12 turned out to be so long I had to divide it into two parts.

I'm afraid the reading I did in advance of this project wasn't very careful this time...

It's a worthwhile project and you're doing a great job overcoming these problems!

I have PL notes on chapter 12, consider them optional as some are too minor to address. Up to you!

Section 33:

6:02 skip "I cannot extricate my spirit"
15:07 I think it should be March 12th (previous one is dated 10th and the next one 15th) :?:
At 21:40 the pause felt a bit long to me, but that can be subjective.
29:50 skip "I enjoyed none of the comforts at home"
32:54 skip "which I was madly fastening about my own neck"
41:35 skip "wardrobe imaginable"


Section 34:

7:08 skip "I explained to her my wishes"
8:29 skip "The few mouthfuls that passed my lips"
17:10 skip "I placed those upon the wash-stand"
26:30 skip "I could not bear to see her misery"
