THE LIFE, CRIME, AND CAPTURE OF JOHN WILKES BOOTH by George Alfred Townsend (1841 - 1914).


This project is now complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/the-life-crime-and-capture-of-john-wilkes-booth-by-george-alfred-townsend/


A series of articles by the New York World newspaper's special correspondent covering the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, its background and subsequent events. It should be noted that some statements in this contemporaneous account have since been shown to be inaccurate. ( Delmar H. Dolbier)
  1. Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/6628
  2. 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 (and 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!

  3. 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!

      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • Say:
      "THE LIFE, CRIME, AND CAPTURE OF JOHN WILKES BOOTH by George Alfred Townsend. [Chapter]"


    For the second and all subsequent sections, you may optionally use the shortened form of this intro disclaimer:
    • "Chapter [number] of THE LIFE, CRIME, AND CAPTURE OF JOHN WILKES BOOTH by George Alfred Townsend. 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 THE LIFE, CRIME, AND CAPTURE OF JOHN WILKES BOOTH by George Alfred Townsend. "

    There should be 5 seconds silence at the end of the recording.

Great Delmar.

I've advertised for a DPL. When you post links to uploaded sections, can you please change the status from "assigned" to "ready for PL"?

Sometimes people post links for safe keeping, when they are not ready quite for the DPL to listen. So changing the status makes clear to everyone that your section is ready for a listen.

Thanks Helen.

Section 1 will actually be the second section of this project, so it's ok that the reader used the short intro for this section. I'll mark it PL OK in the MW.
