I need your opinion on how much to charge..

While I am in grad school and doing my internship I am taking on odd jobs here and there.
My friend hooked me up with this guy who needed someone to transcribe a book that his friend wrote on a typewriter to a regular word document. I googled rates for something like this and got$1.50-$2 per page.
I decided on $1.50pp and was told that he needed the first 3 chapters by thurs. This was on a Friday night so that's less than a week which was fine. Then he leaves me a voicemail asking me to make any grammatical changes because he sees lots of mistakes and he will be showing those first 3 chapters to an agent in LA. At first I was thinking sure no big deal but the thing is a disaster. There are so many mistakes and it's taking me a lot longer.
FI says that now that is copy editing not transcribing what's on the page. Additionally he requested those chapters for Tues (2 days ago) Since I am still working on the rest of it- it's about 300 pages- how much would you charge? $1.50 doesn't seem like enough....

Personally, I would write exactly what he has on the page, then send it back to him for editing. Then make the changes to the word doc you already prepped and charge him the same $1.50 per page, again.
