Thanks much, Sue and Craig! I am very happy to see you all again.

Thanks for the PLing, too. I will fix it as soon as possible (which means probably on the weekend :mrgreen: ).

Thanks Leni. You were MC for my first solo - Soren Kierkegaard Various Readings in 2010.

I found only one error in pronounciation.

8:34 where it is as broad as the Thames at London Bridge – The river in London is pronounced Tames - with a long a.

Craig
Fixed version uploaded, same length. :)

Political Economy is an excerpt of the first 11 minutes of Chapter 1 of Frederick Bastiat's opus, Harmonies of Political Economy, in which he summarizes what he means by the term Political Economy. A charming little piece, which every high school student should be required to read! :D

Hi Michele, Thanks for this additional contribution of the ideas of Bastiat to vol. 60! :)

Craig, Here is the link to Michele's selection for purposes of PLing: https://www.gutenberg.org/files/45002/45002-h/45002-h.htm#I.- (Gutenberg has more than one volume by Bastiat).

:oops: Sorry, Sue, I did give you the wrong link. I have been parsing both books at the same time, finding little jewels in each one.

Hi Sue -

Time to join the fun -

Title: A New York Balloon Ascension
Author: Charles F. Durant
Hi Fritz, Glad to have you "aboard" vol. 60! :) (I was struck by the nautical terms Durant uses to describe his balloon flight.) His barometer has apparently survived: https://airandspace.si.edu/collection-objects/barometer-charles-f-durant; and I found a contemporary celebration of his historic 1833 flight: http://nyctimetraveler.blogspot.com/2013/09/september-9-charles-durant-first.html.

Thank you both! My interest was piqued by a news article on the anniversary of the flight and I was able to find a copy of the Journal of Commerce entry. :)

Hi Craig, Thanks for this addition to volume 60! :) I would have had it PL'd sooner, but in following your Wikipedia link to Bishop Stillingfleet I became intrigued by the fact that he had had his portrait painted in 1690 by a woman, Mary Beale, and then I was off and running on her intriguing history, and finally came round again to Stillingfleet's letter.

There is only one significant error, a sentence you left out towards the end, at 5:45, which begins " Were it my design to publish your just and due character..." You might also check [at 4:52.70] your pronunciation of "efficacy" https://translate.google.com/#en/fr/efficacy, but that may just be a regional difference in pronunciation between you and me.

Thanks Sue :) From what I see there seems to be many women who sign their written word Jan or Mary or Sue but not many men who do that. Probably a lot of women painters beck then just as there were so many female translators.

I re-recorded the whole thing.
