Good luck with your solo.

PL for A Plea for Old Cap Collier, by Irvin S. Cobb.

There are some passages that sound all hacked up..as if someone has jumped in there with a knife and chopped words to bits :)

* 20:24 to 20:34
* 21:06 a few seconds
* 21:44 to 21:54
* 22:59 to 22:03
* 24:02 to 24:05
also at the end the word "plea" is cut off
-------------------------------------------------
I heard a few stumbles where you corrected words but I honestly don`t regard them as a distraction from my listening pleasure.
I thoroughly enjoyed listening, its a great story,amusing and very well read.

PS
I download the mp3 twice and the problems didn`t go away

Hi Leon,

I recorded A Modest Proposal by Jonathan Swift. I'm not entirely sure it belongs in this collection since it's a satire (though it was taken quite seriously at the time). On top of that I had a cold when recording and I think I underestimated the effect that would have on the audio.
But there it is: text, audio (19,8MB; 21:38).
If you think it is annoying, I can re-record it of course.

Another one: On the tragedies of Shakespeare by Charles Lamb (text; audio; 42,4 MB; 46:20). Same goes for this one: me having a cold and all that.

Julie.
Constructive criticism is greatly appreciated!

Mr. Wooster, how would you support a wife? Well, I suppose it depends on whose wife it was, a little gentle pressure beneath the elbow while crossing a busy street usually fits the bill. (P.G. Wodehouse)

Thanks for these recordings Julie. Leon is busy with real life at the moment, so in his absence, I've added your two files to the collection.

Here's one I think works well for this collection:

Thanks, David. As Jo said above, Leon's busy with real life, so I've added our story to the collection for him.

PL Chapter 7 ok. Liked it :D

The only thing I noticed is that in the very beginning of the recording the date and place should probably come after the Librivox disclaimer.

Thanks very much Illit, that was quick!

I hear what you mean about chapter 7, but I think we can let it stand.

Hi,
I recorded the last known letter that Ben Franklin wrote to a local paper under the pseudonym "Historicus." The letter was written as a parody of the debate over slavery in the Congress and so I figured it belonged in the non-fiction catalogue.

I read the text from this site:

http://www.jmu.edu/madison/center/main_pages/madison_archives/era/african/elite/trade.htm

It is 8 minutes long and 7.4MB.

Thanks,
Todd
