Almost got carried away with these. But, I'll do just these two for now, but will follow to pick up a few more if needed.

Section 5. That was a chore, heh.

I did my best with spelling out the words that needed spelling; if there are others that need it, let me know and I'll edit them in. Checker said it was too quiet so I amplified it, but it may have some clipping; I think it won't matter? But I'll wait for the PL to decide. Thanks!

(Also there are some pretty archaic words in here, especially with the gendered nouns...)
There is one spot that has a slight stumble that perhaps should be fixed. It's found at 33:42.

I'm not quite sure what to do about some of the pronunciations, especially---and maybe only---the possessive plurals. I'll have to listen again with the text in front of me.
Okay, I removed the stumble; if there are more changes needed for the plurals, let me know.

That old dictum about not ending a sentence with a preposition may be logical, but simply is nonsense up with which we should not put. :lol:

This reminds me of an old joke which I could never tell here.
