Prince or Chauffeur? A Story of Newport by Lawrence Perry (1875 - 1954).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/prince-or-chauffeur-a-story-of-newport-by-lawrence-perry/
Newport, of course, means aristocratic families and naval adventures. In this tale, we wonder if the heiress will actually marry the Russian prince, who is of questionable character, or the chauffeur, who would certainly be beneath her station, but maybe there's more to the stories of each of our wooers.
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/22390
  • 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!

Hey Jim,

Thanks so much for starting this project. :9: I don't think I can be the MC as I believe it's for LibriVox Admin only. But I'd be happy to help you fill the MW and be the DPL. :D
Constructive criticism is always welcome. Thanks, SaraHale. :D

Thanks, Dave.

Jim, would you like me to add the titles to the MW?

P.S. I couldn't wait so I've added the titles.
