Hi there,

I will add in my footnotes. Now that I know that you want that spoken, will do so in the future. I'll also do the following section and fix the mic and bit rate.

Thanks so much!

Thanks! Will listen later today.

I ran the file through Checker, and the volume appears to be correct. :)

EDIT: Section 15 PL OK. 8-)

Section 16:

0:24 - need to say, "Narrative of the First Attempt by M. Cavelier de la Salle to Explore the Mississippi, part 2" right before text begins.

7:49 - FYI, in navigation, it's degrees, minutes, & seconds. So this would be 30 degrees, 45 minutes.

9:57 - "All the Sr. de la Salle's intrepidity..." sentence repeated at 10:03

Entire recording needs volume increased by 19 dB. :)

Thanks! I should be able to PL this evening.

I know it's not 33 seconds long, so I am guessing your fingers slipped. When I download it, I show it as 28:38. :)

The fingers didn't slip, the Mac Finder didn't update when I created a new version! No rush on the PL, I'm going to try and pound out my last section ASAP.

Section 11 - good! Just one edit on the intro:

0:23 - need to say, "Discovery and Exploration of the Mississippi Valley, by John Gilmary Shea. Pt 3 Voyages and Discoveries of Father James Marquette."
