Lynne,
Elsie hasn't been around for a couple of months now. May I be of assistance here?

Hey Andrew! Here are my PL Notes for Section 11:

First, I think you misread Louis XV as Louis the Fourteenth (which would be Louis XIV) when Louis XV should be read as Louis the Fifteenth. I hate to make you go back and correct it, but I think it does make a difference in the author’s intent.

Here are the times for “Louis XV”: 2:33, 4:56, 7:28, 8:15, 11:50, 14:33, 15:59, 17:08, 18:22, 18:29 20:01, 20:48, 23:01, 23:25, and 23:43

10:50 heard “by 36 days” text says “by 36 hours”

26:43 heard “now to join the privacy” text says “now to join the troops being sent to America. He was consigned to retreat in the Castle of Dijon (1779); he had become a weariness to official mankind. He withdrew (1781-85) to privacy”

27:15 don’t forget to insert “fetched 2 pounds 13 shillings and sixpence!” (Thanks, Lynnet! I would have been totally lost on that one as an American young adult :lol: )

These two are optional - only fix this if you want to. Perhaps the way you pronounced it is the British way. Anyway, this is the American way. I just thought you might want to know since you had said you had not seen some words before and guessed pronounciation wise.

13:51 and 13:53 quell pronounce as “kwell”
27:05 quale pronounce as “kwalay”

Anyway, great job on a difficult section! :D
Wow! Wonderful job with the edits. Spot check PL OK! :clap:

Section 8 PL Notes:

37:27 repeat “Dr Carpenter 1871 discredited the experiments”

40:11 repeat “thus the table rose completely off the ground several times whilst the gentlemen present”
Section 8 is spot check PL OK! :thumbs:

Hi,
Can I claim the Camden Mystery please?

Regards,
Farrah
Two month claim has expired. No reply to PM. Corrections needed for the chapter are necessary so section is orphaned.
