Yes done the edits listed from listening to it so far
Sorry, I feel like we may be having a miscommunication here. I'm pressing on this not because I'm loath to spend a few extra minutes making PL notes, but because I think it's important for all of us as LV readers to understand the idea. What I'm asking is whether you've listened to the part of the section that I haven't PLed yet (8:06-15.28) at least once to check for types of the issues that you know will need to be fixed.

I'm at a bit of a loss here. For the life of me, I can't understand how anyone can listen to 8 minutes of reading and miss five repetitions of "mistake mistake mistake", aside from other things. I have PL notes below, but I'm going to draw a line here and say that this is the last time I'm writing PL notes for what sounds like an unedited recording. If you tell me that sections 25 and 26 are ready for PL and they sound like there hasn't been a reasonable effort to check them and clean them up, I'm afraid I'll have to reject them right away and open them for other readers to claim. Sorry if that sounds harsh, but it's really not PL's job to annotate unedited recordings, and I'm losing hope of convincing you to clean up your contributions before uploading them for PL. So, please think twice before telling me sections 25 and 26 are ready. :)

(7:15) misplaced fragment: "letter was opened, the bewildered agent"
(9:14) stumble and editing cue
(9:32) repeated phrase: "The following year... "
(9:47) repeated phrase: "In 1818..."
(10:52) 30 seconds worth of stumbles and editing cues
(11:46) stumble and editing cue
(12:30) missing word "(regent)"
(12:56) extraneous words and editing cue
(14:26) missing "and desired none"
(14:51) repeated phrase

Thank you, WanderingWalker. Please take your time. We ask readers to submit their recordings within 1-2 months of making the claim, so you still have plenty of time to do it.

This one took me quite a while as I kept making mistakes and ended up having to edit down around an hour of audio. Quite an interesting story, though!

Section 24 - 26:10
