Both corrections made.

https://librivox.org/uploads/m8b1/stateoftheunion_1897_1900_05_various_128kb.mp3 (30:44)

I'm a little worried that I gained 2 seconds, though. Don't really understand that.
No need for concern. I pulled up your first file for comparison. You gave a bit of a longer pause in your corrections before continuing with the recording.

Old time - 7:21:46 - 7:24:96
New time- 7:21:76 - 7:25:39

Old time - 29:57:83 - 30:02:96
New time- 29:57:33 - 30:04:25

Oh, btw - spot check PL OK. :D
Thank you! That reassures me. Sorry for the extra work.

No problem at all. It was much less work that PLing all over again. :wink:

Section 2 Complete, ready for PL.

Well done. :D

Please trim opening silence to less than 1 second.

There is almost a 3 second pause between paragraphs @ 1:19. Was this your intent?

2:13 repeat - Then as now the Government of the United States testified its grave concern and offered its aid to put an end to bloodshed

13:12 word change - Possession, in short, of the essential qualifications of sovereignty by the insurgents and the conduct of the war by them according to the received code of war are no less important factors toward the determination of the problem of belligerency than are the influences and consequences of the struggle upon the internal polity of the recognizing state.

18:03 word change - It confers the right of search upon the high seas by vessels of both parties; it would subject the carrying of arms and munitions of war, which now may be transported freely and without interruption in the vessels of the United States, to detention and to possible seizure; it would give rise to countless vexatious questions, would release the parent Government from responsibility for acts done by the insurgents, and would invest Spain with the right to exercise the supervision recognized by our treaty of 1795 over our commerce on the high seas, a very large part of which, in its traffic between the Atlantic and the Gulf States and between all of them and the States on the Pacific, passes through the waters which wash the shores of Cuba.

Please trim ending silence to 5 seconds.

You did a great job! :D

0:22 - William McKinley, December 3, 1900, part 1
This was originally listed in the MW as the 5th but that was my error. The text indicates the 3rd.

10:58 – typographical error - No reply being received, on the morning of the 20th the German minister, Baron von Ketteler, set out for the Yamen to obtain a response, and oil the way was murdered.
I believe this should be read as on
