Thanks, bhavya, for section 98. Notes for this section are:

Beginning of intro is cut off.
0:58 "Greenfield, Ind." This abbreviation stands for Indiana. Indianapolis was a reasonable guess, since it was just mentioned, but both cities are within the state of Indiana.
2:19 "St. Louis, Mo." St. Louis is in Missouri, not Montana. If you'd like, you may correct the pronunciation of St. Louis as well. It is not pronounced Louie, but Lewis. That is optional, however.
3:33 Longish pause. "The history of the black man's past in no wise serves .... to usurp the functions of present duties."
8:58 Repeated phrase: "...and instead encourage him to industry and correct living, and correct living and increase our efforts..."
9:09 Longish pause. "common condemnation because of the slothfulness .... and lawlessness of some of its members..."
15:23 Small stumble. Correcting this one is optional. "Politics has played an undue part in perpetuating prej- ...prejudices."
24:29 "We endured slavery 243 years..." This one is optional as well, but I think it would sound more natural to fully articulate this number: "two hundred forty-three"
26:47 Longish pause. "...and eventually land owners and a wealthy class of citizens .... of this country."

Section 52 is PL ok. :thumbs:

The file name was slightly incorrect on this one. The "KB" at the end of the file name is capitalized, and capital letters confuse our system. No need to re-upload, though. I've left a note in the MW for MaryAnn to fix this at cataloguing.

Thanks for section 45, Jim. I found this one to be especially interesting. I'm looking forward to the rest of the papers within this topic. I have one note for you. It occurs in two places.

0:40, 1:49 "Phar. D." For the various degrees listed, I've been telling readers to just read the letters if they didn't know the name of the degree. However, this one sounds strange read aloud as it stands, and I think would be better read in its full form, rather than the abbreviation. I went and looked it up (in case my guess was way off the mark), and I think it should be read as "doctor of pharmacy."
