A nice job, as always. If you would just add a bit more silence at the beginning of the recording, you'll be set.

Nice to see some humor in these articles for once!

I also re-uploaded the other files that were still to be PLed, making sure they each had a starting silence of between .5 and 1 second.

Also ready for PL

38 PL OK!

I hear Wilde's argument so often that he is beginning to win me over to his opinion!

Rob, have you found anything---not likely in the newspapers---that discusses Wilde's visit and lectures in any penetrating, insightful way?

Yes, apart from the book from the 30s I am reading for Legamus, there have been three others:

-Declaring His Genius: Oscar Wilde in North America - Roy Morris, Jr. (2013)
-Wilde in America - David M. Friedman (2014)
-Making Oscar Wilde - Michele Mendelssohn (2018)

My favourite of the three is Friedman's.

John Cooper's website is also a fantastic resource. https://www.oscarwildeinamerica.org/index.html
