Might I claim sections 8 and 9 (Grant’s 1874 state of the union)?

Three cheers for Unconditional Surrender Grant!

Hello Owen,
I hope you enjoyed your holidays. It's good to have you back. MW updated.
Thanks so much! I did indeed -- I hope you did too. :-)

I had a question about the text: In two places within the same paragraph, there is a letter T in a word where I think it should be an R. My guess is that this is an OCR error, not detected because the words with T would pass spell-check.

"with the law to support it, it is condemned without a heating"
"condemning the wrong and upholding the tight"

Would it be all right if I read the last two words of those phrases as "hearing" and "right", respectively?

~~Owen
