UPDATED: Thank you to Geolover for the corrections - I proofread that twice (MEGO) and missed several items. I didn't know about freckled vs. heckled... I corrected the items that Geolover noted, and found another one also. When I'm transcribing this, I noticed that LibreOffice writer often autocorrects words at the end of a line for some reason...especially the word "the" become "thereafter" and I've seen others. I need to turn that off somehow...
