Section 9 OK
Section 13 OK

I'm beginning to enjoy this project again, the big game hunting bit at the start was unnerving.
Thanks!

I know... it is difficult for us now to read this kind of report, I think. But the rest of the book is great.

Hello Leni
Here is section 11, although I have to confess it is decidedly uncomfortable speaking some of it [the use of the "n" word is used frequently in this book]…. I'd appreciate your feedback on this. Is it usual to warn future listeners that certain objectionable words are used?

Thanks, Rita! I am sorry you found it uncomfortable. Sometimes, yes, we add to the summary; but that depends. It is not mandatory. If you think we should add, I will mend the summary.

Section 2 recorded. I bet it will end up a lot shorter than my raw 30 minute file once I edit!

Thanks, Todd

Yup, editing got rid of a lot of mistakes. Here is Section 2 once edited.

length 15:14 (cut in half from the raw file!)

Thanks, Todd

Thanks, Todd! Yeah, the proportion of finished to raw file sometimes is surprising :shock:

Hi Leni
Here is section 12:

https://librivox.org/uploads/knotyouraveragejo/rooseveltrondon_12_rondon_128kb.mp3
21:40


I've given the matter of the offensive language some thought, and really believe some kind of disclaimer will be necessary to prevent the shock of encountering the author's frequent use of the "n" word. Not only Librivox readers, but also the listening public should be made aware that the text contains this language.

Sorry for the pl wait y'all but I've been sick. Thankfully I'm on the mend.

Section 2 pl notes
The intro says section ten instead of two. The end is good, though.
Section 11 pl OK
Section 12 pl OK
