Hello,
Here is my very first contribution to Librivox. If possible can you tell me the decibel level. I have a Mac and have been advised not to download Java (required to get Checker). I haven't been able to figure out any of the other ways to check the level. I know I am close, but want to perfect my technique of going by listening and looking at the sound wave lengths.
Thank you,
Irene

length of the recording is 33:17

If it is possible, I'd also like to take section 5. I think I've finally found an optimal recording process for me, so this time it won't take this long.

Thank you for section 4 - I'll listen soon - and thank you for claiming section 5, it's all yours. And don't worry about the time, this kind of poetry is challenging. You're doing a great job.

Thanks, Chris. Yes, on this thread the prodigal sons and daughters can wander all over the world, and show back up eventually, and still get the fatted calf.

I'll be listening withing a couple days.

Hi Ed,
I'd like to do Section 9 please:

9 Chapter 3, Part 1 Read "Chapter 3..." p 329 through "To Aaron Burr" p 338

Love being a part of this!

I'm reading (not recording) (paging thru) a book about the Old Northwest (Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, etc.) from 1815 - 1840 which has a number of poems from the period. The Old Northwest by Buley (Indiana Univ. Press) in 2 volumes from 1954. I don't know if these poems are in the material compiled by Burton Egbert Stevenson or not......they range from Canal poems and Train poems to the Beaver Trade and Quack medicine or a parody of the Whig Tippecanoe song.

I suspect a lot of it was written by the newspaper staffs...... ? I know that Ellen Browning Scripps wrote a lot of 'syndicated' material for the Scripps papers without attribution (as far as I know).
Of course, most (all?) of what is in Stevenson's Poems of Am. History seem to be by 'known' poets. I'm thinking off the top of my head here.

It would take a heroic effort to compile poems from one of more newspapers. (Now I am thinking of The Tumult and Shouting by Grantland Rice, who wrote a lot of poetry as well as being a sports writer. )

I'd better stop :>)
aloha,
joe t.

I don't mind unclejoe getting this section, he seems pretty motivated and I remember seeing in this thread that there are more volumes of these poems to come :)
