Twenty Years of the Republic 1885-1905 by Harry Thurston Peck (1856 - 1914).


Excerpt: At the time when Mr. Cleveland was inaugurated there had been no Democratic President for a full quarter of a century. A whole generation had been born and had grown to manhood and to womanhood without ever having lived under any but Republican rule. This long continuance in power of a single party had led many citizens to identify the interest of that party with the interests of the nation. The democrats had been so invariably beaten at the polls as to make Republicans believe that the defeated party had no decent reason for existence, and that is was composed only of wilful obstructionists or of persons destitute of patriotism.

  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Hi!

Although this is a rather large book, I'd like to forewarn whomever I am fortunate enough (and hope) to have as DPL that I intend to upload several sections a week. Like many of you out there I have a LOT of time on my hands. :-) Just letting you know what you're in for!!!

Cheers!! Stay safe everyone!

Hi! Dave and Thank You so much for being there once AGAIN! :D

Good question! I’m using chapter/part numbers. I’ve actually started recording and it’s really interesting.

Take care!

PS: I just realized that my first post may be misinterpreted. Just because I have time on my hands and like to upload as I go does not mean my PL needs to keep up.😀🌺
