I just read chapter 6 and it ends in the middle of the sentence.

"It is true that laboring men have their grievances, but"

Do you want me to end it like that or would you rather I finish that sentence which includes the title and beginning of chapter 7?

Thanks,

M

Ah, yes. I forgot I needed to post special instructions for these chapters. There are a number of them that really need the title of the next chapter to complete the sentence, and in this case the title of Chapter 7 and the rest of the sentence. So, if you could add that for this one, that would be great!

I'll add notes to the other chapters that are like this.
