Monika has checked your thread and had a note on the volume. Could you please have a look at that before getting started on these sections? This wiki article might help you too :) https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=Measuring_Volume_within_Audacity

I have been wondering how to pronounce the author's name. Michael Combrune's family emigrated to England from France, and the surname was shortened. I am inclined to think the emphasis is on the second syllable. Kindly set me straight if that is not correct!
Hi pete, i think id go with something like come-broon. Since we will not know how mr combrune pronounced it himself, i will leave readers room in this :) emphasis on the second syllable sounds about right to me though :thumbs: thank you!

Carolin,
I have some extra time today so I thought I would do a little PLing here. To double check, you did not want the preface and letter to Dr Shaw read, correct?

Betty,
Section 1
2:18 - Acids are all those things which taste sour, as vinegar, juice of lemons, spirit of nitre, spirit of salt, the oil and spirit of vitriol, &c. and are put in a violent agitation, by being mixed with certain earths, or the ashes of vegetables.
Second syllable of nitre sounds as if it was cut off during editing.

Foon,
Section 5 is PL OK

Section 6
4:46 repeat – Do not the oils of malt, from the heat they have undergone, resemble these?

Pete,
Welcome to LV! :clap:

Great reading for section 11. PL OK.

I'm finished with LV for tonight but, if a DPL doesn't claim the project, I'll listen to your other section tomorrow.
