Dear Maria,

Thanks for the prompt response. Yes, I would like to claim "The American King and The English President". Though I have one doubt, in the page 2 there's this another article titled as "The Irish Eirenicon" so does that include too?

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Thank you!

Warm regards
Meetali
Great ~ all yours! No, please don't read "The Irish Eirenicon" ~ completely different article, and most likely author! :-)
Thank you Maria!

I don't think I'm going to be able to finish section 29 in time. I apologize for the inconvenience. :(

Hi,

I always give at least two months from claims before orphaning. It has been only one month since you claimed it. :-)
If you would like to give it up anyway, that is fine ~ just let me know.

I thought that something was odd about section 6, right at the transition to the next page. The sentence there doesn't make sense to me, and it makes me wonder if there is a line that got cut off somehow. :hmm: But since I have no way of being sure, I just made the best of it, or tried to. :?
