Don’t worry if you don’t get a DPL right away. There are plenty of PLers, like myself, that ~ hunt when we have spare time to PL a few sections.

Enjoy your project!
Thanks Linny!!

Re: Solo - MARK TWAIN'S TRAVEL LETTERS FROM 1891-92

I'm wondering which one to record.

FYI, you don't need to post an ad for an MC. All projects in the Launch Pad need an MC. ;)

Thanks Kevin,
I know I've recorded at least one or two of the articles...

Re: Solo - MARK TWAIN'S TRAVEL LETTERS FROM 1891-92

actual source: Chicago Tribune 1891-1892. I have downloaded PDF's of all the Chicago Tribune articles and will provide them to the PL and MC, but for the ease of proof listening, the PL should read from the Twainquotes material.

Re: Solo - MARK TWAIN'S TRAVEL LETTERS FROM 1891-92

I will be trying, in the next few days, to find an actual original source for these articles. The ones printed in the Chicago Tribune are all hiding behind a fee for access! There MUST be some free sources for these old articles. Of course, Barbara Schmidt's use of them, as public domain material, S...
