Re: Short Nonfiction Collection, Vol. 075 - jo

Hello Sue, Thank you so much for all of the great feedback!

Prohibition uploaded with corrected file name and first 2 PL Notes corrected. Third item is, I believe, correct as I have it.

Re: Short Nonfiction Collection, Vol. 075 - jo

I see you're including the initial from the author's first name in your file name; we're trying for uniformity in file names at the SNF and are using just the last name (which helps in cataloging). After Craig has PL'd would you please revise your file name and re-upload? Many thanks for doing so. ...

Re: Short Nonfiction Collection, Vol. 075 - jo

Sue, Craig and Jo - I found this essay by Aldous Huxley and was wondering if it could be included in this collection. It's the 5th chapter in a collection of essays by him that was published in 1923: Title: Water Music Author: Aldous Huxley (1894-1963) Text URL: https://www.gutenberg.org/files/6086...
