I had to look at your section text to get context to your question. :) If it were me, I'd say the parenthetical words in a somewhat offhand voice, if possible. Or just use a very brief pause (about enough for a breath) to separate it from the main text. Just do what you can. :)

PL of section 14 very good. There is one minor edit needed. In the first paragraph of the reading in the 9th line from the text p 166, "French and Iroquois" should read "English and Iroquois". Otherwise excellent. :thumbs:

Section 14 fixed. The fix occurs around 1:12.

Section 19:

25:41 - "composed of... more than a hundred" - long pause in this sentence

I've made the edit and also went through and cleaned up a few other minor pauses.

PL OK.

Next time you clean up more than what's requested, would you please post the times of the other edits? I'm trusting you didn't accidentally cut off part of a word or something; I don't want to listen to the whole thing again to be sure. ;)
