Very close. There was one word change which changes intent.

7:20 word change - I know Miss H—— perfectly; and am convinced, if her father will treat her as a friend, and with the indulgent tenderness of affection endeavor to wean her from a choice so very unworthy of her, he will infallibly succeed; but if he treats her with harshness, she is lost for ever.

Some of these mistakes I make just set my heading to shaking in a kind of dismay.

I adore your characterization of Arabella. Bravo. Section 1 is PL OK.

There was a small repeat at 3:56 - “For a beautiful person does generally the very contrary of what we expected;

I took care of it on my end so no need to upload again.

Thank you, Kevin.

You are almost finished! Just a few word changes for this one.

3:31 word change - There is little reason to boast of the virtues of a people, who are such brutal slaves to their appetites as to be unable to avoid drinking brandy to an excess scarce to be conceived, whenever it falls in their way, though eternally lamenting the murders and other atrocious crimes of which they are so perpetually guilty when under its influence.

5:19 word change - My accounts may therefore be false or imperfect from mistake or misinformation, but will never be designedly warped from truth.

13:03 word change - I have the honor to be, My Lord, Your Lordship’s, &c. Wm. Fermor

Thank you! I really enjoyed reading her part and I'm glad you like my interpretation. :D
And thank you for your correction of the repeated phrase!

Hi linny,

I can take a stab at Emily's letters if you'd like.
