That would be great!

I have Grant and Lee done (except for a missing line), and I'm waiting on some edits for two others ~ so there are three that are ready to go - I've listed them below. Feel free to pick what you want. Just let me know what you decide to work on so that we don't overlap and work on the same thing at once. :-) :

George Washington and Other Heroes of the Revolution
John C. Fremont
Webster, Clay and Calhoun


Thanks so much!

I can do all three if you'd like! I will start with Geo Washington.

That would be fabulous ~ thank you so much, Elizabeth!
I've been so busy with work I just haven't had much time to focus on these, especially with so many ready at once!

I really appreciate it!

Here's George Washington:

I had to fill in a few missing lines for members of the house (I was one of them, so I read the lines) - and also the "Fight fight!" and "Aye aye!" Hope they sound okay.

Again, had to add a couple of extra "one of the men" lines.

Thanks for the part. I downloaded it to take a listen, and there is a really loud hum/buzz to it. It sounds like some kind of electrical interference to me. Do you have anything plugged in near it? I listened to another file you submitted the other day and it was great - no problem at all like with this one. If you listen with earphones, you will definitely be able to hear it. :-) I tried noise cleaning it on my end, but it didn't really work out well.

Also, with the different roles (unless it is narrator), you don't need to do the long Librivox disclaimer, just: [Role], read by [your name].

will keep the disclaimer part in mind next time...here is my edited recording for other parts anyways.

Sharing knowledge about people who walk different walks of life is a baby step towards understanding them and librivox is a great platform for just that!

Thank you so much, Elizabeth! I very very much appreciate it ! (It probably would have taken me three times as long - or longer - to do)
I am sure the lines you added in will sound fine ~ sorry that they were missing!

Hi Elizabeth,

George Washington, John C. Fremont and Webster, Clay and Calhoun are all okay. :)
