I hope you are well.
As Tyler points out the attachment didn't make it.
However, I do see this bit:
Reading at buffer position 432
load-with-code-conversion("/home/markleeds/.emacs "/home/markleeds/.emacs" t t)
load("~/.emacs" t t)
If the latter two lines appear literally in a file you are trying to load, then you have fallen into the trap of using R like syntax where lisp is needed. (I do know emacs-lisp and do this myself more than I want to admit.)
So move the open parens BEFORE the function names, viz.
"/home/markleeds/.emacs" t t )
(load "~/.emacs" t t)
