The Real Dope: http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/7405
~49,500 words, or about 5-6 hours finished recording

Treat 'em Rough: Letters from Jack the Kaiser Killer: http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/16929
~25,000 words, or about 2.5-3 hours finished recording

Both are letters written to his friend Al, about time spent in WWI. Humorous letters - bad spelling and grammar, lots of arrogance and stupidity exhibited in them.

If you've listened to You Know Me Al, you get the idea.
