I put this one off much longer than intended, but better late than never!

Section 4: Sister Maddelena

https://librivox.org/uploads/availle/blackspiritsandwhite_04_cram_128kb.mp3
Time: 35:06

The last two stories are shorter - with any luck that should make it harder to procrastinate. I don't think I'll manage to get this wrapped up by the end of the month as originally intended, but should definitely be done sometime in the first week of March.

Thanks!

Availle - I've been tinkering with the summary, but I think I'm happy with the version that currently appears in the first post. If you think anything should be changed let me know, otherwise you can consider the current version final. Thanks!

PL notes:

At around 13:12 an intrusive "to" can be heard : "would have aroused to the other inmates of the convent." Also,
at 13:42: "climbed to the rope"

~ 13:48 the word "little" was skipped. The recording goes " with but three craggy resting-places" while the text says
"with but three little craggy resting-places"

~ 16:05 there seems to be an intrusive "to": "fastened to the note to the rope". The text goes " fastened the note to the rope".

~ 21:19 There's a missing word. I can hear "plainly as in life", while the text goes "as plainly as in life"

~ 26:14 I hear "There seemed to no answer", while the text is "There seemed no answer"

What a good story! Romantic and creepy. :D

I definitely appreciate your attention to detail, but keep in mind that this is a Standard PL Level project, not Word Perfect. I don't feel like any of these affect the meaning, nor would they be noticeable without following along with the text. For the time being I've left them as is.

Regarding the following:

I'm not hearing a "to" in any of these - I think I just overemphasize the ending of certain "-ed" words :lol:

I've tried to clarify them. New version is waiting in the MW as well as linked below:

Point taken! You're right. It seems I was suffering from an overzealous ear. :D

Section 04 is PL OK.

Better overzealous than not zealous enough :)

Section 5 - Notre Dame des Eaux, ready whenever you are:

https://librivox.org/uploads/availle/blackspiritsandwhite_05_cram_128kb.mp3
Time: 18:16

Dead Valley and the postscript should be ready within the next few days - hoping to wrap this up soon so I can focus on some March to the Finish Line projects.

Thanks again!
