Chapter 24 - The Philanthropist's Christmas - is PL OK.
That said the program 'Checker' objects strongly about the noise level in the recording, and Audacity reports there's only 27-and-a-bit dB between your voice and the noise level. I've listened to bits of the noise and it sounds like it's mostly electronic noise, and in your chapter it isn't particularly distracting, so we'll let it pass.
In future recordings you might want to try using Audacity's Noise Reduction effect. I tried it on your chapter - using the default settings in my version of Audacity - and that improved the signal to noise to 39-and-a-smidge. When I ran the Noise Reduction effect and added a High Pass effect as well (at 6 dB/octave, 150 Hz) that was further improved to nearly 46 dB. But do, do, do be cautious when processing your recording - it's easy to make an OK recording sound pretty bad if any of these noise reduction attempts are taken to an extreme.
Lastly, I'm predicting Mr. Carter will end up not collecting Sniffen/Pete after the holidays, though he may demand the right to take that pup for walks.
