QUESTION: Do I read the project gutenberg ebook notes and the table of contents? Im assuming yes but don't really know.

Ignore that last stupid question. Starts at chapter 1- France... plus the intro.

Better to ask questions if you're not clear...

But yes, jump straight in with the Librivox intro as in the first post, then begin reading chapter 1. You don't read the table of contents or any other introduction unless instructed to by the BC of the project (and that would usually -- but not always -- be section 00). Some BCs have very strong opinions about how they want their project read. Others (like me) less so 8-)

A question of text;
"They had thought her dead, yet here she stood again without a sign of injury; or was it Michael himself, the great archangel whom she resembled do much?"

It seems clear that the author intended 'so much'. Shall I replace 'do' with 'so'?

another text question; chapter 5
...her boundless faith in the orders which she believed had been give her from Heaven,

Should I replace 'give' with 'given'?

I would say yes to both since they are obvious typos.
You can report errors like this directly to Project Gutenberg, but I have never done so.

As a general rule, though, we have to read what is written, even if we know it is just plain wrong (so even if you read it as written here, you would be right, even though it would sound like you misread it :roll: ) A case in point... all through a novel, someone was described as a raven-haired beauty... then, suddenly, in chapter 45, her blond tresses cascade over the pillow. :hmm: :hmm: :hmm:
Similarly, in non-fiction works, subsequent knowledge may prove statements to be false, but we still have to read them as the author wrote them, reflecting knowledge of the day. But here, I think you are safe reading them as logic dictates :thumbs:
