Section 9:

0:26-0:31, 0:32-0:37 - a couple long pauses, feel a bit too long to me. Maybe tighten them up a little bit?

13:59 - I don't think you need the footnote at all, unless you move it to earlier in the section where it is referenced. Here it seems to not relate to anything. If it were me, I'd simply remove it.

Section 11 PL OK!

Very nicely read - thanks! Yes, they are a bit harder; different style than we're used to nowadays. :)

Hi Tricia:

Here is section 9 amended, I shortened the pauses, yes they were a bit long and took out the footnote bit at the end, easier to take out than add in!!

A time of 13:53:62

Thank you! Yes, certainly you may have more. :) These aren't everyone's cup of tea, so I'm glad you're enjoying them. 8-)

Section 12 - read any, all, or none of the footnotes as you think beneficial to the reader.

Section 10:

2:08 - repeat: "and want.. and want of observation"

The first part of the essay reminded me of that old song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R4GLAKEjU4w
Don't know much about history
Don't know much biology
Don't know much from the science book
Don't know much about the French I took....
