A few more comments/questions for consideration, please:

Chap 31
SA
12 After "slaves", add "of the laws"?

Chap 33
Your loss, my gain
After "me listening, said" add "laughing"?

Chap 34
P&R
2 Change "crimes which you had" to "crimes as serious as you had"?
3 Typo: Change "rich a fair" to "rich and fair"?
16 Change "nos non secuti" to "nos secuti" and change "navis" to "naves"?

SA
9 Change "I shall attain" to "I have attained"?

On Lesbia's husband
Change "you exult in leisure and pine too much" to "you exult in leisure and indulge too much"?

P&R

I'm on the home straight now, hoping to complete Chaps 36 to 40 in November. But that is only the end of the beginning!! - there's a lot more ahead.

Thanks again to all contributors for making Textkit such a great resource!!

Thank you once again. You have been my primary reviewer of the higher chapters and I am very grateful for all the help you have given. Now, I think it's about time to get a new version out!


Chap 34
P&R
16 Change "nos non secuti" to "nos secuti" and change "navis" to "naves"?

I was using the -is accusative plural which Wheelock does mention, but much too quickly and only in footnotes. navis, -is typically prefers the pure i-stem forms (-im acc. sing., -i abl. sing., -is acc. plur.) so I am inclined to leave it.

SA
13 Change "breast" to "breasts"?

I think I left it in the singular just to avoid the awkwardness, but I will put the s in parentheses next time ;)
