Recollections And Letters Of General Robert E. Lee By His Son by Robert E. Lee, Jr. (1843 - 1914).

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: http://librivox.org/recollections-and-letters-of-general-robert-e-lee-by-robert-e-lee-jr/

Quote:
The life of the Confederate States Of America general, Robert E. Lee, through the eyes of his youngest son, who was also a Confederate Army officer. Published in 1905. Note: in many of the letters the recipient's name is printed after General Lee's signature; the White House is not that in Washington but General Lee's elder son's house in Virginia.

  • Text source (only read from this text!): https://archive.org/details/in.ernet.dli.2015.75963
  • 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 (aand 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!

  • The reader will record the following at the beginning and end of each file:
    No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!
    START of recording (Intro):
    • "Chapter [number] of Recollections And Letters Of General Robert E. Lee By His Son. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • Say:
      "Recollections And Letters Of General Robert E. Lee By His Son, by Robert E. Lee, Jr.. [Chapter]"


    For the second and all subsequent sections, you may optionally use the shortened form of this intro disclaimer:
    • "Chapter [number] of Recollections And Letters Of General Robert E. Lee By His Son by Robert E. Lee, Jr.. This LibriVox recording is in the Public Domain."
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • Only if applicable, say:
      "[Chapter title]"

    END of recording:
    • At the end of the section, say:
      "End of [Chapter]"
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • At the end of the book, say (in addition):
      "End of Recollections And Letters Of General Robert E. Lee By His Son, by Robert E. Lee, Jr.. "

    There should be 5 seconds silence at the end of the recording, or 10 seconds for files longer than 30 minutes.
  • Example filename recollectionsandletters_##_lee_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number (e.g. recollectionsandletters_01_lee_128kb.mp3)

Dave at craigdav1 says he will dpl. Thanks.


There is a text of this book on project gutenberg but it is a mostly unformatted version which I find challenging to read smoothly. For that reason I will record from the listed pdf copy on internetarchive.
