Thank you! Here is the link:https://librivox.org/uploads/lynnet/menofscience_49_walker_128kb.mp3
It is 9:21 in length.
Chapter 49:
0:37 Please use the full title e.g. DD = Doctor of Divinity, FRS = Fellow of the Royal Society
3:54.8 Misread “a third appeared in 1782” as “in 1784”
4:08.5-4:10 Long pause
4:12.5 Missing word pound (or l) in “a salary of 100l.
5:55.5 Missing word pound (or l) in “330l., and it is now worth 1000l. at least”
8:05.2 Misread “sold for more than 20,000l.” as “than 2,000”
8:31.5 Misread “six volumes 8vo.(octavo), 1785” as “8 volumes, 1785”
At the end, please add 4 seconds of silence, since we need a total of ~5 seconds of silence.

Hi Bethany! I hear background sounds (like flipping pages) throughout the recording, clearly audible at about 7:27, 7:34. Just cutting out those sections or simple noise cleaning should help.
The following link has some helpful videos https://sites.google.com/site/librivideo/for-volunteers/recording
Also, if possible, please read "l." as "pound".

Please make the changes and re-upload.
Thanks for recording :D
Bethany, please make these edits by December 31 so we don't need to delete your recording.

With regret, I am going to have to orphan section 49, Richard Watson :cry:

I'd like to get this to the catalog, so a speedy turnaround would be appreciated!

Hi. I did not see a stipulation on your post about British readers. If you are not partial to Americans participating, I will claim your section 49 to complete your memoir.

Thank you Tricia! :D
Just a few PL Notes. Please make the changes if possible. All else is PL OK :thumbs:

Chapter 49:
Intro - Please use the full title e.g. DD = Doctor of Divinity, FRS = Fellow of the Royal Society
8:04 Misread “Revenues, recommending an equalization” as “commending an equalization”

Oops - I think that misread at 8:04 was actually overzealous editing. :lol:

Fixed - now 10:51
