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

No - you cannot record the introduction. It's not part of the texts - it's not an acceptable text to record, just like we don't accept any audio intros by any readers. I thought I said that in my last post about it. :? I've removed it from the MW. Because it's being removed, section 2 is now sectio...

OK I have 01 and 02 up and in the MW. The links work! :-) Word perfect is word perfect, so I point this out to you. You actually improve on the text in your recording.

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!!

I've not checked if the content is identical to the Chicago Herald. Aix-le-Bain https://chroniclingame...

With the small, editorial differences between the TwainQuotes.com material and the (New York) Sun version...

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

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

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. I plan to read from the actual newspaper article PDF's. If there are ty...

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!
