To Rick V. and Leni,
Wow, Rick--great job with section #6! I only have one concern; when I tested the volume on MP3 and Checker, it registered at 88.6 dB, just under what the guidelines call for (89 and above). Leni, if you could please advise on this, that would be appreciated. I just wanted to make sure you both knew.

Thank you,
Lora

Hi Leni and Larry,
I had time to PL section #1 and have one question and one note. The question--do the author's name and dates of birth/death need to be added to the introduction? I believe the other sections include those items.

The note--at 7:09 please change the poem title from "The Doom of Life" to "The Doom of Lee."

Thanks to you both,
Lora
You mean at the very beginning of the section? If so, yes, please. :)

Thanks, Lora!

Rick, if you could amplify it a bit, I would appreciate it. It's always tricky to have a section lower than the rest. :(

OK, uploaded section 6 again with a bit higher volume. Same length and link, but here's the link again:

Oh, and if section 28 was orphaned, I can go read for that one as well.

Hi Rick,
Upon checking the volume again, I got 90.6 so I'm marking that section PL Okay.

Thank you!

Approx. 3:04--Change "stated" to "started"
When fairly started, he happened to run across

Approx. 13:31--Change "Be" to "By"
When he swore he used to say, "By my conscience!"
Thank you, that helps a lot! The above is all I need - I just do a text search (CTRL-F in Firefox), a few words that are (hopefully) unique will do the trick. I'll try to get those corrections to you asap.
Section 36 fixed and reuploaded. Same time.
Thank you! :D
Cheers, Ava.

Okay, I've added the dates and corrected the poem name.
It this still doesn't sound right, I'll try again
