PL for Chapter 19:

The name of the British ship Guerriere is pronounced 'Ge-re-ray' five times (20:59, 21:59, 22:21, 22:54 and 23:10)
and the sixth time (correctly, I think, since this is a French name) as 'ge-ree-err" at 25:51. You can decide whether to change the first five or the last one. This name also occurs twice in Chapter 20.
I can record this however you like. I was, and am, perplexed as to how the English might pronounce a French name.

linny, I'm sorry I'm not going faster with this. My voice hasn't been cooperating for nearly a week now. I'm just doing a little bit each day.

For me, I would say the British at that time would have pronounced it as you did at 25:51. But you're also saying it as an American narrator, so it certainly doesn't have to sound 'French-i-fied'.

Hi, I finally got an account for my oldest daughter, so you can change:

Section 71 (Helen Chapman) to the user JazzyGirl.
(the other ones can remain under me)

Thanks & can't wait to hear it!

And her catalog name can be "JazzyGirl" too.
