I need a little help with my two last sections - the title abbreviations:

COUNT RUMFORD (SIR BENJAMIN THOMPSON), LL.D., V.P.R.S.,
JAMES WATT, LL.D., F.R.S. L. and E., &c.

LL.D means Dr. of Laws; F. R. S. is Fellow of the Royal Society. The others in bold I have no idea, and a quick search doesn't find anything suitable. Count Rumford was knighted though if that gives an idea to somebody? :help:
Cheers,
Ava.

He was a doctor of laws... so probably what I took as “economic law” (yes, it was as bad as it sounds, but a required course :roll: )

Reverend...? It's the usual term of address for a minister in the Anglican church. Does that make sense in the context?

Chapter 6: Matthew Boulton
1) 1:39.3 – Missing word “purchased” in “operations, purchased, about the year 1762”
2) 1:52 – Long pause
3) 2:04.5 – Repeat “Boulton’s Boulton’s instinctive mind”
4) Volume is 87.5dB, a bit on the lower end

Thank you :)
