Here is section 23: https://librivox.org/uploads/m8b1/newwitness1922_23_chesterton_128kb.mp3 13:14
I'm afraid there were a couple of places I couldn't decipher the text:

0:47 "he carried it to the point of ** as some fatalists do" -- read as "affirming"
9:43 "the ** labour politician" -- read as "official"

Here you go, at 9 minutes and 19.15 (or so) seconds.: https://librivox.org/uploads/m8b1/newwitness1922_31_chesterton_128kb.mp3
Call me Kingsnake.
Now, I've done some personal work with Audacity before, but this is my first time using noise reduction; I'm not sure if I did it right. Please be patient if I don't get it right the first time.
Also (and I probably should've asked before recording, but the adjustment isn't huge), the third paragraph has a sentence (the one that begins with "As a matter of fact" that contains the word "phophesy". Near as I can tell, this is simply a typo; the typesetting is quite clear, but even my mighty OED doesn't have that as a word, and the context of the sentence makes it clear that he means "prophesy", which is what I recorded it as. Let me know if I need to redo it.

Thank you! Great job ~ it is PL OK! I agree that it is a typo and should be "prophesy". :-)

Great! I'll take thirteen as well.
EDIT: Assuming it's still available, that is.

I would like to read "The Eugenist Versus the Man of Science". However, I can't see the text, so I would appreciate if you PM it across.

Edit: Looks like the guy above me beat me to it. If not could I have the last one (50. on being called Teotonic). Failing that, any unclaimed one.

Hi,

I've assigned 50 to you. I tried to download the pages now, but was having trouble. I will try again tomorrow. Sorry for the delay!
