    unduly close/undue interest/got his dues/overdue/in due course/heavy taxes and dues

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to share ith me your opininon concerning the correctness of the following sentences?

    Just now he was held unduly close to his work.
    Diverse strange characters were taking a peculiar and undue interest in his movements.
    If Jack London had got his dues for piracy, he would have been given five hundred years in prison.
    The train is overdue.
    You will hear of it in due course.
    We ought to give him his due, he has done his best.
    After due consideration he accepted the offer.
    She has been criticized unduly.
    Give the devil his due.
    I have ti give her due warning.
    I have to take due measures.
    The train is due at 10.
    I was due to start today.
    That was a mistake due to inattention.
    We have to give his due; he works hard.
    There were heavy taxes and dues.
    Her absence was due to illness.

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V.
