thank you, Parsa, these are excellent corrections :thumbs: well done.

Unfortunately :( you mixed up one single edit still, all the rest was perfect:

> at 29:01: (p. 316) Conditions of the Peace. A. Indemnifications – you have the title and subtitle in the wrong order here. "Conditions of the Peace" should be place before "A. Indemnifications"

One last upload and then you're done ;)

thanks

Here is Section 57:

:lol: well we are still far away from contemporary. I found it interesting how many nations claim to have had first access to America. I only knew of the Vikings.

Oh and great to finally see the small country of Luxembourg on the rudder of the big world history, with the Bohemian emperors. 8-)

Both sections PL ok, excellent job, Jim :thumbs: thank you

there is no need at all to apologize, Matt. :) You are still well inside your 2-month-deadline, and you tackled the probably longest section of this project. :shock: For a relatively new volunteer, this is quite a feat. And on top of that, you made my job so easy and agreeable by delivering a flawless 1 hour and 5 minutes :thumbs: Thank you so much for this. It was a treat to listen to it.

PL ok, definitely. (now you can relax with a shorter and easier section somewhere on the forum :mrgreen: )

Section 78 - Italy

Interesting summary of how fragmented Italy was before the 19thC :hmm:

thank you, Alan and yes indeed, Italy was always very fragmented until they fought for a unity and independence later on. It was indeed an interesting chapter. :thumbs:

This time I found a few notes to correct though:

> at 1:33: (p. 415) forgot to insert the date "1736" after "King Theodore I of Corsica"

> at 3:23: (p. 416) "supported by German mercenaries" – I hear "missionaries", could you check please, as this is quite a change in meaning :D

> at 3:56: (p. 416) "Königsmark died" – this cross symbol means "died", I would include it to give meaning to the sentence

thanks

Thank you for the kind words Sonia (and taking the time to listen through that)! Now that most sections in here are shorter do you mind if I pick up 66 and 74?
