I'm quite hopeful. You seem to have some background, so also have a look at gate.ac.uk. Their components are very useful.

in my oPiñon, there "will be" the sign of cancer involved in the poem solution, somehow

I’ve jammed a lot of oral history in these 515 words, but I’ve also left out a few things.

Possible. Heavy loads will fit via crab to cancer. And if you are a believer that chest contents are related, so will claw.

the constellation of cancer is traditionally connected to crab, but also lobster and crayfish

treasures bold has these letters in reverse order ... l-o-b-s-e-r

RE: Olga
A little off-topic from the header but added for those who are curious about the results and topic of NLP AI... have a quick look at the definition of "adjutant" in relationship to "aide-de-camp", and the follow-on word "marabout"/"marabou" ("hermit" ["alone"], and "down" feather for fly fishing). These are words about which I knew nothing and have never used in my daily speaking.

Yes. I don't have it up and running yet, but a website will eventually show something like ... aide-de-camp --> adjutant <-- marabout --> down ... and marabout --> hermit --> alone

145 pages? I have over 400 "paragraphs", but that's because I'm also splitting them in between pages so that I can source back to the page number and location on the page. My rows end up becoming page number plus paragraph number within the page, and then the text.

Oops. You have a point. I wrote some code to break it into paragraphs. It spits out 415 not 145. It was late and I guess I inverted the numbers. I didn't break paragraphs on pages. I did do stuff like this though:

CHAPTER: FIRST GRADE

CHAPTER HEADING: Lanier School

Figure Caption: Mr Fenn, Principal

Figure Caption: Lanier School, Temple, Texas, 1936. My father is
standing at the far right.

which my paragraph parsing code counts as 4 paragraphs.
