I'm having a little more difficulty with Section 11! Haha! But I'm almost done!

Section 10 ready for spot check:

Section 11

https://librivox.org/uploads/linny/stateoftheunion_1913_1922_11_various_128kb.mp3 (39:27)

More oddities in the text, but I was able to track down what was needed.

Provided I did Sec. 11 correctly, I won't be back until Calvin.

Hi Kevin,
Just 2 small edits. Some of those word finds must have indeed been a challenge.

12:23 – repeat - so we had the horizontal reduction saw fit to adopt too slight to be felt by the higher class cargoes and too little to benefit the heavy tonnage calling most loudly for relief.

19:08 repeat - I wish I could bring to you the precise recommendation for the prevention of strikes which threaten the welfare of the people and menace public safety.

Section 1 (Wilson 1913) is here:

https://librivox.org/uploads/linny/stateoftheunion_1913_1922_01_various_128kb.mp3

Time is 29:03. After wading through Taft, Wilson is refreshingly brief.

And section 2 (Wilson 1914) is here:

https://librivox.org/uploads/linny/stateoftheunion_1913_1922_02_various_128kb.mp3

Time is 36:45. I think every state of the union message I have recorded has complained about the condition of the Merchant Marine (in which my grandfather served), Wilson being just the latest. Of course, now with Europe at war, it is a real problem. I'll leave it to others to learn if anything is ever done about it.

Thanks, Linny.

Thanks, Linny. PS, the title of the group read is 1912-1922, but the first speech in the group is 1913. :hmm:

[19:04]

I added a line.

No no, I mean I added a line up from Section 4.
Section 4 will start one line later.
