Hello. I have uploaded and welcome your feedback.

Thank you.

Nice pacing and articulation in your recording. We do have a few notes on this chapter:

At the start, please reduce the silence to within .5 to 1.0 second.

At :21 "twenty one" is repeated
4:53 repeat of phrase: "Why don't you look at the..."
5:45 "merciful feathers" should be "merciful fathers"
6:00 audible loud intake of breath
8:02 "as in usual such places" should be "as usual in such places"
8:31 "this doesn't look much like a ..." should be "this don't look much like a..." [I know the grammar is incorrect but that's how he talks]

At the end, please reduce the silence to only 5 seconds - you have about 8

If you need assistance with editing, please let me know. Replacing or adding words is a "cut and paste" procedure in which you can highlight the second, open a new window (Ctl + N) to record the new words, copy them (Ctl + C), close the window without saving, return to the original window and use Ctl + V to paste them into your original recording.
Oh my, cringe moment.
I am so glad there was no permanent damage. Thank you for your kindness and help with cleaning the mess I made.

I appreciate your kind feedback. I will address those issues and advise when uploaded, with the correct filename this time.

Happy Thanksgiving.

How are those edits coming along? Just let me know if you need help.

I've checked your corrected file -- we still have a bit too much silence at the beginning (please reduce to between .5 and 1.0), and at 5:38, we still have "merciful feathers." Everything else is fine.

Chapter 21
I have shortened the beginning silence. The later error is very minor and I think it can be overlooked, so I have marked it PL OK and will head to the catalog.

Before you go to catalog, I still have outstanding notes on chapters 2 and 4.

It’s already in the catalog. I thought you just hadn’t marked them.
