Hi!

I've added the missing words to this one back in. It changes the length to 25:10
I've marked Section 10 PL OK.

Best,

Barbara

So,...you may have thought Cochrane could do long sentences, but in this chapter, just when you think its over, you get a valedictory poem!

We don't do them anymore, for some really good reasons. 8)

Basically, beware the poet at the end. 8)

Hey, I enjoyed that poem. You really did it justice. Tragically, you left out verse 5 at 33:34 - "A captain whom it had been ours to cheer..."etc.

Best,

Barbara

Hi,

This last file failed validation in the LV Checker because it is longer than 60 minutes, but I thought we were allowed a maximum of 72 minutes?

This appendix is a series of letters to Lord Cochrane from one of his captains in the Greek campaign. If it is kept intact, it's the last file. There's a spare section in the MW because I thought it would go over long and need to be split.
PL OK ! Just one more PL note to go and you will have brought your great project to completion.

Best,

Barbara

Thank you both so much.

Barbara, you've been a trooper. Thanks for helping me finish this. As I said before, it has taken nine years on and off. I'm tremendously grateful.
