Hi Todd,
I have a clarification question. The MW says 5100 words for Chapter 27, however it looks more like 7495 words. I looked back and forth several times to see if I missed something or on the wrong chapter, but still looks longer. Its not a problem. Just want to make sure.

I estimated word counts by counting them up on a couple of pages, and then counting pages per chapter. Guess you got a chapter where that kinda averaging does not work well.

(The averaging worked out for some chapters - take a look at the MW for chapters 3 and 4. For 3, I estimated 1500 words; reading is 10 minutes, meaning 150 words per minute which is about right for many readers. Chapter 4, estimated at 3000 words, took a bit over 20 minutes.)

Sorry, Todd

PL Notes Section 6, Chapter VI. At 5:05 "her advertant" should be "her inadvertant" At 8:24 after "playing on the flute" this was left out: "the violin requiring more patience than he had to bestow" :)
Thanks for proofing. Here are the revisions:

PL Notes for Section 20, Chapter XX. At 20:31 "She no longer" should be "She no sooner" At 33:10 "In spite of himself" should be "In spite of herself" :)
