H.M.I.: Some Passages in the Life of One of H.M. Inspectors of Schools, by Edmund MacKenzie Sneyd-Kinnersley (1842 - )
Sneyd-Kinnersley was an Inspector of Schools in a period when regulations were rapidly changing and access to free public education was expanding widely. He fell into the job accidentally and shares anecdotes of his years traveling around the country. (Summary by LynneT)

May I please claim the chapter 2: Anglesey ?

Besides being near the end of the Readers Wanted Forum, an appeal that I gravitate toward, I sense a humorous British turn of phrase here that appeals to my former life in rainy and windy Britain.

Normally I do pretty serious bloodthirsty stuff where two massive armies whack at each other with axes. I need something a little silly. I promise not to go into Tom Baker mode doing this.

Enjoy! I’m not sure if there are welsh words or names in this section, but if there are, bear in mind he was English and probably couldn’t pronounce them either :lol:

I think I've read most of the wiki already, but will go through this section a couple more times as I do the actual task.

Do you want me to do the footnotes where they occur in the text? Or at the end?

I have said footnote 1 etc and at the end of the whole recording i said the footnote text. IN my case the footnotes are long tables that would have interrupted the reading. That's why I have done them at the end.

But if you want a different approach then I will need to know. I have done the section and this is my only question.

I would agree with that. But you do say in the MW that I should footnote and end of footnote? To quote it says:

Please read footnotes in the format "Footnote... end footnote" at the end of the sentence or paragraph to which they refer.

That's true... but if you think it more logical elsewhere, that's fine. Rules are made to be broken, right? This is more of a guideline than a hard and fast rule.
