Found the mismatched tag on line 94:
"<p>My Name in Nelma Lois Thornton-S.S. No. sjn-yz-yokv/p>"
"<p>My Name in Nelma Lois Thornton-S.S. No. sjn-yz-yokv</p>"
I'll run all the html files through a simple script to identify the mismatches using etree. Thanks.

This is inconsistent. The exception in the stack trace is from a
coding error in extractText. It looks like maybe ExtractText is
catching exceptions and printing them, and a bug in the exception
handling is causing the UnboundLocalError

If you look at a few more lines do you see anything untoward? Perhaps
there is a missing </b> before the <p>, for example? I don't think <p>
is allowed inside every tag.
