Hi David. I didn't thank you properly for adopting this project to MC.

I finally worked out the appropriate file name for the uploader. But now I notice that I've given the project a redundant title - The Letters of Madame de Sévigné to her daughter and friends by Marie de Rabutin-Chantal, marquise de Sévigné (1626 - 1696).

I don't trust myself to be able to edit the title of the project without shipwrecking the main page. When you have the time, could you please crop the title to a neat:

"The Letters of Madame de Sévigné to her daughter and friends."

Eternally gratefully yours,

Barbara

Sorry for my late reply Barbara, I've changed the title.
One note, I noticed you've used an upper case L for letters - we need all lowercase for the filenames. :wink:

eta...I see you've uploaded a 'lowercase' filename. I've corrected the MW. :)

Hi Barbara,

These are as lovely as I remember them and you are the perfect reader for the work.

At 14:35, 16:15, and 17:49 I hear "1688" for "!668."

My best,

Pam

Thanks Pam. Fixed. But what a weird error! Was I thinking of the Glorious Revolution??

Hi Barbara,

Section 1 is PL OK.
