PL OK! Great work with all of the typographical errors. Goodness! :roll:
What do you think *this one is?
I favor the recommendation of the Secretary of War
for the detail oil officers from the line of the Army when vacancies occur in the Adjutant-General's Department...

I think it's "detail of officers"

I decided to put both terms for Roosevelt into a single project. It's going to be BIG, he was a talker. Addresses range from 9,782 - 27,397 words. I have all but the last two addresses portioned, so far the parts are coming in between 3400 and 5560 words. I should get the project launched tomorrow.

KevinS already indicated he would like the first address; 1901 19,616 words in 4 parts. If anyone else wants to preclaim, let me know.

I’d be delighted to take the second full address if still available. My apologies for being somewhat invisible during these last several months (business related Covid matters were a tad consuming). I hope everyone is well and safe.

Best, Paul

I have responded to all in PL notes. I feel pretty good about the editing on the errors but I'm not 100% sure I did the amplifying properly.
