Both of these sections are broken down into parts, and some of the parts are already recorded. So you won't be reading the whole chapter. Do you want both sections 15 and 17 (chapter 6 parts 2 and 4), and section 21 (chapter 8 part 2)?

PL OK, but I'd suggest doing some noise removal on it, if you are up to it. :)

Hi Tricia,

Thank you! I've done some more cleaning on it - I think I got my files muddled up somewhere as I've had all sorts of weirdness with this one exporting at a totally different db level to everything I've ever recorded so I think I've gotten confused somewhere in the processing and lost track of what I had and hadn't done!
Hopefully this is better.

Section 22:

Nicely read!

10:59 - "the work of negro emancipation" - the word "negro" in here has a slight stumble in it, so that it sounds a lot like the offensive version of the word. Would you be willing to re-record the phrase to make it more clear? (It's such a volatile word, I want it to be clearly not that word.)

13:07 - Stumble & repeat: "and he was lodged"
