Hi Andrew, Welcome to the Nonfiction Collection! I started to listen to your recording while I checked your specs, source, etc., and am at 11:33 of the 23 minutes as I write this. Wow... Your comment "What a godawful dude" is putting it mildly. It's hard for me even to believe that anyone of that mentality could have been tolerated, but he was...OooThatsNifty wrote: ↑July 20th, 2020, 3:19 pmHello!

What a godawful dude.
A couple of notes:
- As per the transcribers note, I left the instance of "Question" instead of "Query"
- There were a few challenging sections here, what with archaic spellings / pronunciations and unfamiliar syntax. I did my best to stay verbatim and researched meaning / pronunciation as best as I could, but there were certainly points where I had to go with an educated guess. If anything sounds funky or if the intention isn't entirely clear, please let me know and I'll see what I can do.
You read very well. I haven't noticed any problems with the recording, but if, by chance, there are any, Craig, our dedicated proof listener, will help you out.
Thank you for undertaking to read this powerful historical document for the Nonfiction Collection!
