Your corrections were right on. Completely seamless. Both Chapters now PLOK :thumbs:

As for your other comment, that is one of the beauties of LibriVox. There are enough readers to get everything done, and enough projects that everyone can find something they want to read. :D

Keep up the good work.

Also I'm going to have to withdraw from section 20 as it has more language than I'm comfortable reading. I apologize for not doing a better job of looking through it before volunteering.
No problem at all. Thank you for letting me know.

Thanks for the feedback for Section 6. I'm currently editing a few chapters right now and I'll update with an improved version as soon as I am able.

Here is section 37(15:58):

I really love your reading. I am looking forward to listening to more of it.

There are a very few things that need to be looked at:

3:14 We have reason to believe that the American Colonies, however they may have disagreed among themselves in one mode of opposition to arbitrary measures You said operations

6:53 The act of parliament of the 7 Geo. 3.3 intitled, The second “3” refers to the footnote at the end of the section, so should probably be deleted.

Also, the file name is slightly incorrect. You forgot the “v” (for volume two) before the 2. Just add it with the corrected file and all will be right with it.

P.S. We have been to Rohnert Park, and loved the Charles Schultz Museum.

I really enjoy listening to all that was going through the lives and minds of the Founding Fathers. Thanks for making it accessible to many more people.

Here are a few things that need a little attention:

3:15 the consequence of which was a scene of confusion & distress for the space of seventeen months, You said sense

3:35 and at the very time when the interposition of the civil magistrate You said interpretation

4:12 are compelled to submit to as great a military power as administration shall please to order to be posted among them in a time of profound peace, I heard line

~9:05 There is a very long pause which could be shortened to good effect.

9:21.5 4th Geo. 3 chap. 15, You should probably read this. This is how to read it: Fourth year of the reign of George the third, Chapter 15:

9:56.75 in the court of At the end of this, it sounds like you start to say the word “exchequer”, but stumble a little. I think it would be a very easy 'clip' at the end of that phrase to clean it up.

10:15.5 & which cannot be too often repeated; You said repealed

10:33 Another long pause

10:35 These are some of the insupportable grievances which this province has long been laboring under I can't really make out what the first word is, but I don't think it is These.

11:03 will be still increased. Left out the word 'be'

11:11 Again you left out the reference. As we are supposed to read everything in the text, this should also be read. 7 Geo.3.2 This would be read 'Seventh year of the reign of George the third'. The “2” at the end refers to the footnote at the end of the section.

14:46 Another long pause

Keep up the good work. This whole process isn't as easy as it looks at first blush. :shock:

Thanks! Here is my corrected version (now 15:55):

https://librivox.org/uploads/linny/samueladamsv2_37_128kb.mp3

I used to bring Honor Society field trips to the Schulz Museum. They did a great program for students. Then they'd go ice skating. When I was a kid and he had just opened up his ice arena, that was the place to go!

Your corrections were seamless. Very well done, however...... when you corrected the file name by inserting the 'v', you forgot to add 'adams' as the author after the chapter number. Of course a quick fix, do that and you will be AOK.
