Here's section 19: https://librivox.org/uploads/darvinia/seastirringstoryvol1_19_whymper_128kb.mp3 Thanks.

Colin
Hello Colin,
Very nicely read. Thank you. :D

5:22 slight stumble - green cheese and a cooling slice of melon

13:10 slight stumble - the piercing squall of a healthy baby

31:26 slight stumble - which has trading-posts throughout British Colombia.

The recording could use a little noise cleaning. Do you know how to do that? If you are using Audacity I can walk you though the process.

When you post your revision please correct the file name. It should be: seaitsstirringstoryvol1_19_whymper_128kb

I'd like to claim Sections 24 and 25 please, the African station. I travelled to some parts of South Africa including the south coast there recently, so it will be particularly interesting to me.
