I'm missing the instructions for the last eight bars to Peat Fire Flame.
Could someone let me know what they are?

33-36 2nd and third couples dance half rights and lefts
to bring them back to their own sides in top and third
places (omit the polite turns at the end
because the dancers finish two places apart).
First man casts off to below third place on ladies
side and then dances up the centre of the dance to meet his
partner,who casts up above top place on
the men's side and then dances down the centre of the dance.
37-40 1st couple turn by the right hand one and a quarter times to
finish in second place on own sides,but
stay facing out ready to cast off at the beginning
of the next turn of the dance.
2nd and third couples turn by the right hand.

The book clearly states left shoulder,in fact left is underlined.
