Thomas,
It certainly is interesting.

Conclusion is all yours. Hopefully a PL will stop by to take a listen. If not, I can probably get to them on Tuesday.

Hi Thomas,
Great work! Section 22 has one small change.

Section 22
25:14 Were not the law so expensive and so uncertain, dishonest traders would never risk the many violations of it they now do.
I hear expansive

Standard PL doesn’t note pronunciation but I came across one of those strange spelling where you wouldn’t know unless you were reading for LV. So that you know for next time… 15:38 gaoler - https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/gaoler

Thomas,
Section 23 is PL OK. Well done! :thumbs:

Section 39 has one slight error.
"Chapter 32 of Social Statics by Herbert Spencer. This LibriVox recording is in the public domain.
Read as 22

I thought I would try these: 28, 29, and 30 (having been at one time a poor teacher--of course poor in a pecuniary sense, not in a pedagogical one). Jim

Hi Linny

I have been bitten by the bug and have been in bed the last day or so. This will cause me to require another week to 10 days to complete chapter 20.

I thank you in advance for your understanding.

Will be in touch again soon.

Karen

Of course. Besides, who doesn't love Herbert Spencer?

To tell you the truth, I'm not a big philosophy fan, but I agree, Spencer isn't so bad. :oops:

Thomas,
22 and 39 are both spot check PL OK. Thank you!

Jim,
Long section. Thank you. Be careful of the file names. You numbered this one with the chapter instead of the section. You are in the MW. Since I'm not DPL on this project I'll put your file to the end of my PL list and hopefully we will pick up a DPL by then. If not, I'll get there. Sure and steady.
