I've laid out the material for the demi-chapter on Aitape but didn't do anything on it today. Instead, I took Chapter 3 in to Jeff, so he now has the first nine. Then I went on a word-trimming exercise through the footnotes. Some 1,500 words were recovered at no cost but this is just a drop in the bucket. A more severe cut-back effort is required but will have to wait until Jeff gets around to reading the chapters he has. In the meantime, I can proceed with Chapter 10 or 11.
