Hi Jim,
Congratulations on a job well done! :clap: I've just marked Vol. 3 Section 45, Letter #60 PL Okay, and unless you see anything else, I believe I'm finished with your sections. The project is moving along--thanks for your contributions!
Best regards, Lora

Do you like the book?
I'm not sure if you are asking this of a specific person, or all of us, but so far I do like it, very much! I haven't been reading the whole story so far, mostly just my own letters, and little pieces of some of the others. I don't agree with all of the little moral arguments that Fanny makes, but it fits her character and the time period. I'm looking forward to finishing this book so that I can listen to the whole thing in order. :)

I asked everybody, because I am curious to hear. You invest so much time recording that I wanted to know.
Love Children's books? Try On Angel's Wings. Looking for an easy read? Try Herb Of Grace. Want some philosophy? Try The History Of The Devil. Like mysteries? Try Natalie Paige.

Miss Stav -

For the letters that I have already recorded I am definitely enjoying the book so far! It is an interesting way of writing a book by letters back and forth between people. Also it is a place in time where things were very formal and for women they are treated very differently than they are done today - more as objects than as equals it seems.

Hi David and Miss Stav,
If the volume of a recording goes through Checker and it's high (92.4 dB and 92.6 dB), does the reader need to decrease it or can editing take care of it? Thanks--I'm too new to know all the technical details. Lora
I am not sure if anyone answered this for you or not - 92.4 and 92.6 dB are above the 3 dB variance on 89 dB (or range as Checker calls it) so when I get volumes of that level when I am PL'ing I do ask the person to reduce the volume closer to 89 dB and resubmit the recording.

Hi Lynda--
Vol. 1, Section 7, Letter #11 is PL Okay, and #12 is okay until the very end (13:57) where I think it should be "End of letters 11 and 12, not 10-12. Please check me on this--thanks. Lora
Hi there!

Here is Section 7 with the correct Ending :)

Thanks, Lynda, for the corrected ending and for the information about the volume. I did think it was too high and will ask the reader to decrease it. Lora

To ivanyuan,
Here is a summary of corrections for your recordings, when you have a chance to review them:
Section 19, Letter 25--at 5:31 please use "Yours most truly"
Section 29, Letter 37--volume needs to be decreased from 92.4 dB to between 86-92 dB with the target being 89 dB
Section 42, Letter 55--at 2:54 the word should be sufferings in the phrase "my sorrow for her sufferings."
Section 57, Letter 75--volume needs to be decreased from 92.6 dB to between 86-92 dB with the target being 89 dB

Thanks-please let us know if you have any questions.
Lora

Hi David and Miss Stav,
I went ahead and did the PL for Lynda's latest recordings and marked them in the MW. They will need to be uploaded to the MW when someone has a chance. Thanks, Lora

Lynda,
Vol. 3, Section 46, Letter #61 is PL Okay. For Vol.3, Section 52, Letter #67, at :38-- I think the LXII should be read as 62, not 42.
Thank you! Lora
