I've added the following into the first post:
John Winthrop served as governor of the Massachusetts Bay colony for several years. His History of New England, 1630-1649 details life in the colony and narrates several controversies that arose within the plantation.
Examples include the excommunication of Anne Hutchinson and a civil suit over a sow that expressed the tension between the aristocracy and democracy and led to the establishment of the bicameral system within the New England government. The Pequod war, treaties with other Native American tribes such as the Naragnasetts, and the establishment of the United Colonies are also covered.
Is there anything else I need to do to complete the cataloguing?

Thanks :)

Congratulations on finishing this absolute beast of a work! I enjoyed helping with it and I learned a lot.

I've started the cataloging process, but some of the files are a bit soft in volume. It will take me a some days to amplify them and get it into the catalog. (I'd prefer all the files to be no softer than 86 dB.) If you would prefer to amplify them yourself, please just let me know :) Otherwise I'll get it done in between, as soon as I can.

That would be great! Do you want to amplify the ones that are too soft in sections 1 through 13, for instance? And I'll do the last half? Or do you have another idea? :) I haven't been able to get any of them done, but I should have some time in the days to come.

I can do 1-13. No problem at all. Do I just need to fix the volume and then reupload? I won't be getting through these very fast either since I'm visiting my parents and their Internet speed is pretty slow, so no worries.

Yes, please, that is great! The files that have a volume below 86 need to be downloaded, amplified, and then uploaded again through the uploader. I run them through the Checker to see volume. Do you have a similar tool, or would you like a list of which sections need amplification and by how much?

I found Checker easily enough! No problem.
