Section 32 Ready

I've marked it PL OK, but I do have one optional correction:

6:24 (not required): I believe that 'sound' in 'I sound that the clefts' is a transcription error, and should be 'found'. (Here's the original scan [second line from the bottom of page 148]. It seems to be an 'f' there, rather than a long s)

I'll send an email to Gutenberg to get it fixed.

I looked at it and pretty tough to tell the difference between those S letters that look like F's and real F's. The meaning of the sentence isn't really impacted so as an optional fix I'm going to let it go.

Section 22: Not my best reading, but I hope it will pass. Challenging type of material.

I have a couple of notes:

11:29: Repetition of 'and in some there'
16:54: 'in one of these petrifying shells' should be 'in one of these petrify'd shells'
17:30: 'For it seems to me quite contrary to the finite prudence of Nature' should be 'For it seems to me quite contrary to the infinite prudence of Nature

Almost done indeed! :clap:

Looking at the two readers with outstanding sections, they were not online since mid March / beginning of April. I think it's time to orphan their sections, including the one with the PL notes.
Cheers,
Ava.

You're right. Can you move this back to Readers Wanted?

37 is already taken, but you can have 9 and 10.

I guess this can return to Readers Found now.
