Hello! Here is section 46:

5:55
Greetings -

Welcome to LibriVox.

Section 46 was read well but has a couple of things that need attention:

At 01:02, the following was omitted: "or over a mile above the level of the sea, yet for eight months of the year the climate is pleasant. Where
the town now stands was formerly “Coburn’s Station,” on the old Dutch Flat wagon-road."

At 02:27, there is a noticeable pause in the middle of a sentence.

Fix these two and the section will definitely be PL OK.

Lomond
Thanks, Lomond! Done and done.
Here's section 46 with those changes: https://librivox.org/uploads/icequeen/comstocksilverlode_46_dequille_128kb.mp3
