Re: SOLO London Labour Volume III -ans

I solo'd a book on crime and punishment a while ago. The author thought that the tendency towards crime might be genetic (and apparently that's a modern view, too). It's obvious that beating someone doesn't change their behaviour for the better; there must be *some* way to break that pattern of thie...

Re: Learning The History Of Librivox

That sounds fine, but I'd tend to expand "yearly months", so you have something like "Approximately once a year, one month is dedicated to ...."

Re: Is this Audacity or my microphone?

You might try some other recorder. In Windows 10, you can search for "voice recorder". You should be able to tell whether it, too, is recording too quietly.

In Audacity, View/Toolbars and show the Mixer Toolbar. Make sure your microphone and playback sliders are set to their maximum.

It might be worth noting the cleanup months and their statistics ... but possibly messy to find them.

Re: SOLO London Labour Volume III -ans

I went back and checked a scan of the book, too, when I wondered about the numbers.

Section 79 PL okay.

It's difficult to see what the numbers in those two tables of working skills of the vagrants mean. ... but we're drowning in numbers by this time!

Re: ~OPEN[DRs]DR Scene and Story Collection, Volume 003 - thw

Reading the narrator for Alice's Tea Party, there's a line highlit for the dormouse which I think is actually one of Alice's: Alice did not quite know what to say to this: so she helped herself to some tea and bread-and-butter, and then turned to the Dormouse, and repeated her question.

I have a busy rest-of-the-week, though.
