thank you Betty, this time I listened through it all and your preliminary work saved me a lot of note-scribbling :9: So interesting to hear about the more "recent" event (relatively speaking of course :lol: ) The Titanic was noteworthy for the author ! And the invasion of my tiny country by the Germans also received a note :shock: It was chilling to read about the beginnings of WWI in this section.

Nice narration, I did find a few small things to correct still:

> at 8:23: (p. 601) between "John Paul Jones" and "discovered in Paris" – page reference can get cut "p. 430"

> at 8:37: (p. 601) missed date: "the Elgin commission, April 19, to apportion"

> at 10:09: (p. 602) repeat, one version can be cut: "and ceded the southern half of Sakhalin. Manchuria to be evacuated by both powers"

> at 12:47: (p. 602) between "1802" and "abrogated" – please cut page reference "p. 463"

thank you !

Also big thanks to Availle, Devorah and Alan, MW is updated, though I fear I will not be able to PL much this weekend. Patience, the sections will be on the top of my to-do-list.

a wonderfully precise narration of the events, Availle, thank you so much. The way you integrate the dates into the sentences made it very easy to follow along. :thumbs: All perfectly PL ok.

Here is it. Corrected times noted below.

I actually put this after "Petronius Maximus," to stay consistent with how I did most of the other dates.
thank you for the new time stamps, Devorah, this helped a lot to find back the spots. I would not have thought that the times would change that much :shock: And I agree, the last date is best inserted where you put it :thumbs: All PL ok now.

two more by Jim...thank you yet again, and no worries for the French in section 84, I thought you dealt with the names quite well. I would have understood them all. :thumbs: No need to redo anything at all, in fact both sections are PL ok right away. The genealogical tree for the Dutch was also very clearly presented. Two more in the box. :9:

I can't believe there are only three left to claim. I figure I should let others have a chance, so I will only claim 85 for now. If I may? Jim :)
