Here is Section 16. Interesting that people started colleges knowing that they would be beneficial for all. Funny business about pseudo-scholars and their antics--sounds modern.

absolutely PL ok again Jim, many thanks. And yes, I suspect many rich kids only enrolled at university to lead a student life in the taverns :lol: So many Latin drinking songs stand testimony to that ;)

:lol: yes back then they were quite multilingual. They had to be to understand each other, since the populace was quite mixed. Though I guess there were many interpreters around to translate for them. ;)

Section 17 again PL ok. Thank you, Jim :)

haven't heard back from Mayah again :( so I will open up her two sections again. I hope she is fine though.

If I remember correctly, Jim, you offered to take any free sections, so I'll assign them over to :) So now it can be treated like a solo again.

That is so, and I am happy to request to record orphans 12 and 13 to allow it be a solo project. Thank you. :D
