There are 224 chapter sections, most are dated by the author, and of the handful that are not, the date is clear from the context in all but one, where I have estimated the date.In many cases, multiple times are indicated, as events led to more than one diary entry on a particular day- dividing them may serve to emphasize their separateness.One example of how the reading experience changes is with the log of the Demeter- the original listed all the log entries in one list - now you can read them intertwined with other events as the tale unfolds.
