Hi Dave, If you find no corrections to be made we are finished recording this book. Some notes:

--chapter 16 is very short so I appended it to chapter 15 in file 15. so we don't need section 16.
--I think we ought to add to the keywords: the sea
--I have slightly edited the original book description:
Walpole’s first novel (1909), The Wooden Horse is the story of the Trojans, a family which accepted tranquilly the belief that they were the people for whom the world was created. But when Harry Trojan came home after twenty years in New Zealand, with the democracy learned by working his hands, he was the "wooden horse" who boldly carried into the Trojan walls a whole army of alien ideals, which made of that egotistic family a group of human beings content to be human. Interesting are his struggles against stubborn prejudice; dreamlike the pictures of the old Trojan house, rising from the edge of the gray Cornish cliff like an older cliff, yet surrounded by fragrant rose gardens; but what most distinguishes The Wooden Horse is its passionate adoration of the sea, the cliffs, the weather-worn old Cornish houses, where bearded men tell of haunted moors and the winds of the deep.

Thanks and have a great Thanksgiving. We are going to sequester, just ourselves, too much food, and the two dachshunds. Will miss our friends.
Peace, David

Let me know if anything is amiss. Nice addition to the catalog. Walpole was a prolific author.
