May I read section 15?
Highly appropriate at the present time :(

Also section 7 (I read about this in a French historical novel, one that inspired Game of Thrones, so interesting to read a historical account)

I'd like to read section 1 please.

Are you sure you don't want the footnotes with the translations?

Michael
If you feel that the footnotes will add to the narrative, then I don't have a problem with adding the footnotes. That has always been my opinion on footnotes. The ones that don't explain anything just take away from the story, so they really should not be added in. Section 1 is yours, thank you Michael!
