To DickBD--
My congratulations on getting through section #33; I felt like I was going around in circles! Several minor notes: at 1:13, 1560 should be changed to 1650; at 30:45, please remove "not;" and at 30:47, remove "not." That should do it.

Many thanks,
Lora

Thanks again Lora for your awesome PL-ing ...

Here it is with the edits Section 33 revised

now 32:32 in length ...

(one of the benefits of reading for Librivox is that you get to think about, read, review text like this - to the point of
having a bit of it sink in ... :wink: )

I was preparing to read Section 1, but there seems to be an error at the beginning of the text, which is printed as:

"Richard Henry Dana the elder, although he died less than twenty years in 1787, in Cambridge, four years after Washington Irving.'

Obviously, something has been omitted. :shock:

I did find this on Archive.org
https://ia800306.us.archive.org/26/items/libraryoftheworl25015gut/25015-8.txt

"Richard Henry Dana the elder, although he died less than twenty years
ago, belonged to the first generation of American writers; he was born
in 1787, in Cambridge, four years after Washington Irving."

So, I will read the above to fill in the ellipsis between "years" and "1787."

I assume that's okay,
And maybe we need to send a note to PG.
