Section 48 is fine now; thanks, Gill. I was worried that I was nit-picking. Do tell me if it seems that way.

Not at all, Peter. That's exactly what I want. I spend ages sometimes trying to remove little clicks etc. I'm a bit crazy that way ...

Having said that, I think Section 50 is not my best. (Coming up ...)

Section 49 PL okay.

There are some real gems tucked into these interviews!

Sorry - I thought I had uploaded Section 50 already. Just realised it was missing from the MW when I went to add the next two to complete the Coal Heavers section. (Don't feel you have to rush to do these!)

Section 50 (37:51)
https://librivox.org/uploads/annise/londonlabour3_50_mayhew_128kb.mp3
From page 252 "In order to complete ..." to page 258 "trimmers: 800".

Section 51 (26:59)
https://librivox.org/uploads/annise/londonlabour3_51_mayhew_128kb.mp3
From page 258 "I continue my inquiry ..." to page 261 "onto the wharfs".

Section 52 (26:25)
https://librivox.org/uploads/annise/londonlabour3_52_mayhew_128kb.mp3
Page 262 - 265: The Coal Porters

Section 51.

Slight errors, Gill. I'd have ignored the first, but I think the second probably needs to be corrected.

15.28 "... better paid for. I have had, myself, as much as ...". "for" is missing.
25.15 "... making the total last reduction of their wages amount to full 30 per ..." Read as "last total reduction"
