Hi Kristin,

Great! How many would you like?

I've put you down for a few with minimal lines:
032 - People (in the Pilgrims play) - 2 lines
055 - Third Man of the House - (George Washington play) - 1 line
074 - General Scott (Andrew Jackson play) - 1 line
092 - Mr. Haynes (Webster, Clay and Calhoun) - 1 line

Let me know if you want more or less roles. As long as they don't talk to each other/in the same act I'm fine with anything. :-) All the roles are pretty small, but I purposely pulled out 1 and 2 liners for you, not knowing quite how small you wanted!

In honor of Dramatic Works Cleanup Month, I'll take on the following roles:

Standish
Thomas Jefferson
George Rogers Clark
Andrew Jackson
President Van Buren
Henry Clay
John Hanks
Ulysses S Grant


If you don't want me to claim that many, that's A-OK. Just let me know!

Hi David,

056 - Missed line @ ~1:14 highlighted in blue.

Hancock: Not in favor, no. (All Aye). Then General Washington is Commander in Chief of the American Army.

(Cheers).

(Goes to ante room and brings in Washington who left during Mr. Adams' speech).

Gentlemen, this is General Washington, Commander in Chief of the American Army.

(More Cheers).

They're quick!

http://upload.librivox.org/share/uploads/mb/historyplays_menofhouse_053.mp3 (0:23)

http://upload.librivox.org/share/uploads/mb/historyplays_memberofcongress_090.mp3 (2:23)

There were two lines in a row for "Other Man." I think they could be the same person.

"Member of Congress" is three distinct individuals - two northerners and one southerner. I gave them different voices and threw in a very hokey Southern accent. Feel free to change things, discard, ask for another reader for part of them, etc. ;)

I'll take 78 and 91 to finish things off! I'd also be happy to help with editing if you'd like.
