Chapter 56:
1) Intro: Read as “Section 56” instead of “Chapter 56 Memoirs …”
2) Please add at the end of the book: "End of Memoirs of the Distinguished Men of Science of Great Britain Living in the Years 1807-8, by William Walker Jr. "
3) Filename: Missing “n” in science - “menofsciece_56_walker_128kb”

Thank you :)

Hi Lynne,
The intro of Chapter 1 is as follows: “Chapter 1 of Memoirs … William Walker Jr., Introduction, Preface to the second edition”
Just wanted to clarify if the chapter name is right, or if the “Introduction” is unintentional. Rest is PL OK.

Chapter 2: William Allen PL OK :thumbs:

Thank you... it was the introduction and preface, so a bit tricky to handle. I can change it if you don’t think it sounds right.
