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. Dormouse: “W...

Re: SOLO London Labour Volume III -ans

Section 77 PL okay!

We're rattling along. I've really got to settle to recording volume 1 again; you put me to shame.

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

Re: SOLO London Labour Volume III -ans

Thanks for all that work, Gill. PL perfect following the corrections, except ..... and I'm sorry that I missed it on my first pass ... in "... many of them provinge shifters, lyvinge by cozeninge, stealinge ..." you've had them "lying and cozening", rather than "living by cozening" (33.58) Change it...

Re: SOLO London Labour Volume III -ans

Gill, PL notes for Section 77 The Carrying Trade 2620 "Prescriptive right, and the laws and by-laws of the corporation ..." Read as "rights" [I wouldn't have mentioned this, but if you're correcting others, you might tidy up this one.] 2710 "... what constitutes the business of a fellowship-porter."...

Re: SOLO London Labour Volume III -ans

Thanks, Gill; I've not listened to your recording yet, but, for me, I'd try to read that stuff as if I were making an attempt to read Chaucer in the original, perhaps with just those terminal and near-terminal "e"'s pronounced.

I'll PL tomorrow and get back to you.

Re: FULL [DR] Four Noncanonical Sherlock Holmes Short Stories by Arthur Conan Doyle - mtf

I'd forgotten that we have all the readers' parts' acknowledgments, so here's the first section, preceded by the dramatis personae:

Re: FULL [DR] Four Noncanonical Sherlock Holmes Short Stories by Arthur Conan Doyle - mtf

When I merged the files in my first attempt, I think I found it too difficult to copy across the inspector's "have" convincingly, and left it. But I've now changed its pitch and tempo a little, and it's a bit better. I'm not sure whether it would be better to leave the original as it was. Your choic...

Re: SOLO London Labour Volume III -ans

Edited section 73 is PL okay.

EDIT: Section 74 PL okay.
EDIT: Section 75 PL okay. It was odd to see that paragraph comparing the criminal tendencies of the various classes.

Re: SOLO London Labour Volume III -ans

PL note for Section 73: 2018 "... and, as is not uncommon with uninformed men ..." Read as "uniformed men" ! You're right about that hackney driver's story. The prince picked him up and threw him into the carriage! ... and .... "Then one season I used to drive Lord Barrymore in his rounds to the bro...

Re: SOLO London Labour Volume III -ans

Section 71 PL okay. For some reason, I've not been able to get into the magic window. I'll log the section status some time later, when I can get in. EDIT: MW updated. The French instructions were much better than ours; "persons who may drink, sing, or smoke (were not permitted) to remain in the car...
