Hi Kevin,
Much more interesting than Cleveland. His writing style is more story like.

7:24 – word change - So strong was this belief that it needed but a brief Executive suggestion to the Congress to receive immediate answer to the duty of making instant provision for the possible and perhaps speedily probable emergency of war, and the remarkable, almost unique, spectacle was presented of a unanimous vote of both Houses, on the 9th of March, appropriating $50,000,000 "for the national defense and for each and every purpose connected therewith, to be expended at the discretion of the President."

OPTIONAL: - 30:01 – word change - Their forces invested Manila from the northern and eastern sides, but were constrained by Admiral Dewey and General Merrill from attempting an assault.

So....there was this name in the SOTU that I was unfamiliar with.
One President Faure.
And so I went to my trusty source to learn how to pronounce the name.

It's good to have you. The readings in this project can be taxing so let me know if you run into any trouble. Good luck and have fun.

Lol, you are awesome! Thank you for the laugh.

20:02-20:05 should be deleted.

There is also a repeat @ 23:33-23:48 - A review of our relations with foreign States is presented with such recommendations as are deemed appropriate.

Great job keeping ‘presidential’ energy throughout the section.

Yes, it is indeed truly amazing. Who would have anticipated such similarities?

And they say political readings can be dull. We make fun where we can find it. :mrgreen:

Section 11 is PL OK. :D More typographical errors in this one than typical. Great job working around them.
