Hi Mike,
I'm sorry for the delay. I was given a second classroom and none of the seats were 6' apart. After an afternoon of moving furniture I couldn't bring myself to do anything more yesterday.

9:20 - Missing text - and economic feasibility of this project. From the short summary which I have seen of it, I judge they consider the engineering problems can be met at somewhat increased cost over previous estimates.

Great quote, “In addition to dealing justly, we can well afford to walk humbly.”

Thank you!

4:22 – word change - He is dependent on himself for support and therefore entitled to the rewards of his own industry.

11:39 – text correction - We are, therefore, levying duties on about $1,550,000,000 of imports. Nearly half of this, or $700,000,000, is subject to duties for the protection of agriculture and have their origin in countries other than Europe. They substantially increased the prices received by our farmers for their produce. About $300,000.000 more is represented by luxuries such as costly rugs, furs, precious stones, etc. This leaves only about $550,000,000…
If added up, I believe this should be $300 million.

Thanks Linny! I've uploaded my sample recording to the Listeners and Editors Wanted section as instructed in the 1 Minute Test page: viewtopic.php?f=21&t=84500 I'd appreciate any feedback you may have-- as I stated in my post there, I think it sounds somewhat muffled, but that might just be me.

Jeff,
You did a great job! :clap:

41:55 – typographical error - For the most tart agriculture is successful, eleven staples having risen in value from about $5,300,000,000 two years ago to about. $7,000,000,000 for the current year.
This should be part

50:21 – stumble - But in maintaining it we must not be forgetful that a great change has taken place. We are no longer a weak Nation, thinking mainly of defense, dreading foreign imposition.

50:49 – stumble - These are virtues by reason of their own merit. But they must not be cloistered; they must not be impractical; they must not be ineffective.

51:23 – mic bump

There is a moderate level of background noise. Please noise clean.

The bit rate should be 128 kbps and constant rather than variable.

Please let me know if you have questions about the notes or how to make the necessary changes.
