Hi. I just wanted to repeat I claimed section 3 earlier on, so it doesn't get overlooked. It's not been put in the MW :)

Sorry for the delay!
Internet has connection has been very spotty at our vacation location here in the mountains, so it has been pretty hit and miss.

I'm confused why you're submitting this section again. I already gave you a PL OK a few days ago following your corrections :hmm:

Right. Here's the correct section
https://librivox.org/uploads/icequeen/americanleaders_03_gordy_128kb.mp3 13:27
Nice job on this section :D

Would you mind taking a look at
2:59 there's a little jump
12:07 "...to a more than..." should be "...to more than..."
12:46 "...on a charge of a treason..." should be "..on a charge of treason..."

Thank you

Here is chapter 24:
https://librivox.org/uploads/icequeen/americanleaders_24_gordy_128kb.mp3
Running time is 22:13.
Thanks!
Chapter 24:

Great articulation in your narration!
I would ask you to just add about a half second at the beginning of the recording.

Also, for future recordings, please try to leave a tiny pause between sentences and a bit more between paragraphs. Sometimes it just feels a bit cut off and rushed.
Here it is with the fixes! https://librivox.org/uploads/icequeen/americanleaders_24_gordy_128kb.mp3
running time now 22:14.

PL Notes for chapter 6:

Your familiarity with English is very good. I only had a couple of notes:

5:12 Providencetown should be Provincetown
6:26-6:31 There is a background noise that sounds like machinery
10:44 The word "threatened" seems to be a little cut off

I fixed the first two points. I didn't notice any problem with the third. Duration stays the same as before.
