Thanks, Tomas! Excellent work! I love the eating!

I'd like you to add this part at around 8:48 of act 2:
Bag-raker!
Skin-cat!
Bag o' nails!
Scull-an'-cross-bones!

Old Daddy Longlegs wouldn't say his prayers—
Take him by his left leg, and throw him downstairs.

Go along! Go to hell!
We'll skin you.
Melt ye down for taller, we will.
Only he 'ain't got none, the red herrin'!
It's scripted for "Boys (all together)" and originally, I wanted it to only be the unnamed boys. But I think I'd like to include a little bit of Bill in it, too, since he later says that he was "chaffin' the old 'un," I believe the phrase was. :wink: Read the whole thing, please, and I'll pick and choose during editing. It'll end up being a mix of solo and unison lines.

Also, I believe that this part, here: "Nay, doan't thae tell mo that! Thae made gam of mo, and hurried and scurried mo, as iv aw'd been a mak ov a deevil—yo did." should have been Thomas' line, not Bill's. I think that's a formatting error, and I didn't notice it before now. That's how all of Thomas' speech is written, and it would make sense (much more sense, in fact) for him to say it. I've contacted that reader to ask if he could record this one line for us.

I found another formatting error in act 3:
Mat. What do you mean, Bill? Bill. A rig'lar swell—I repeats it—a astin' arter a young woman by the name o' Mattie.
The bolded text is Bill's line. Looks like there should have been a line break there. Insert this at about 1:20, please.

Act 4 is PL ok! Again, great job! You're right, he's definitely not an easy role, but you handled it beautifully. :D

Thanks, Hannah. Happy to have you!
Just to let you know... I won't be able to record until at least the end of the week. I see all other parts are almost done, so I didn't want to leave you wondering. :)

No problem. You just joined this project a few days ago, so I wasn't expecting your part to be done right away.

We are also waiting on our Second Boy, and I've been in contact with that reader through PM. When his part comes in, act 2 will be ready for the final edit. :)

So close for act 4! Sounds like there was a copy/paste error. You inserted the following line: "Gently, gently, young man!—If I give your neckcloth a twist now—!" in two places: once where it belongs, and once at about 6:45, where this one belongs: "Yes, miss;—to-morrow, he says."
Duh! :shock: Well, let's try this: https://librivox.org/uploads/kitty/ifihadafather_colonel_4_128kb.mp3

Thanks, Hannah! I'll listen soon. And assuming that everything is good, I can hopefully have Act 1 ready for final PL by tomorrow night at latest! :9:
