Sec 39:

15:22

The old English here was a bit tough -- tried to find a decent translation of these verses but not much success. Spelling was such a haphazard thing back then and even within this selection there is a wide variety of spelling of some of the same words. Add to that the Scottish pronunciations and mayhem ensues :D :D :lol:

Please don't hesitate to let me know if there is anything glaring that needs correction. I certainly won't be offended.

I may as well take section 27, as I have already done part of the Dumas sections.

Hi Colleen,
You did a very nice job with a long section! For #1 I have one note: at 13:16 please omit the repetition of the phrase "There one witnesses the most carefully calculated moves..."

Thanks,
Lora

Thank you! I made so many stumbles and restarts in this one I'm surprised I only missed one in the edit! Thanks for catching it!
