The Leopard’s Claw (George Washington Ellis) is on the Launch Pad, I'm doing it solo, please remove it from the list when you can.

Thanks.

Jim is reading "The Negro Problem", edited by Booker T. Washington, so I have removed it from the list in the first post.

There already is a copy https://librivox.org/the-negro-problem-by-various/ - it must have been missed.

MaryAnn, I have signed up (created two new topics) for Minnie's Sacrifice and Sowing and Reaping, both by Frances Harper. Thanks again for all of your help! Jim :)

Thanks Jim. I've taken them off the list in the first post, together with Trial and Triumph as I understand you are adopting that one as well.
