Here is Section 27, 13.25s

https://librivox.org/uploads/lynnet/hawaiianarchipelago_27_bird_128kb.mp3
Which comes after S26 *rather than 16 :lol: *
Hah! Even the proof listener needs to be proofed :oops:

I retroactively fixed the comment to have section 26 to avoid confusion in the future.

Section 27 is PL OK.
That was fast. Thank you. I only noticed the 16 when I was scanning my reply to you.

I'll move on to the next, which is about the Leper colony ;-( but thankfully short. Leprosy sounds quite hideous.

Question: I'm not quite sure whether to add this chapter to the previous letter (27), which would keep the section number and letter number the same. To do that, I would insert it where the 'end of section' in letter 27 is now, and then ask you to proof from where that begins (I'll tell you where) to the end. Would you be OK with that?
I was going to have it as a separate chapter, but it doesn't seem worthwhile, since it's quite short plus it would then throw the numbers out. (Don't focus on the chapter numbers from 27 on in the MW right now, as I haven't quite decided which way to go.

That would be fine by me (and sounds like a reasonable way to avoid throwing off the section numbering).

That's what I've done. I have thus uploaded the revised section /letter 27 incorporating the chapter about Molokai.
I have touched nothing before 13.15, after the ILB at the end of the letter. Moved End of Section to end of file.
It is now quite a bit longer, at 35.34s. Hard reading about the lepers and the effect of leprosy. Reminded me of the so many dreadful diseases people have been able to find cures for.

I agree, it was hard to hear about all of their suffering and sacrifice. Thank goodness for modern medicine and vaccines that have saved us from having to experience this firsthand.

I noticed one issue.

A very short one this time, as she finds a way to get closer to her beloved volcanoes.

Brr - sooner her than me, she was a stout hearted explorer, was Isabel!
And only a few more to go. I probably won't be able to do much in the next couple of weeks as I'm going on holiday down to Tasmania (we can finally travel a bit at last!) but then I'll work on finishing this book off. I've let it lag quite a bit with one thing and another.

You weren't kidding! This one was nice and short. I noticed one issue.
