[SOLO] Mark Twain in the New York Times - Part Three (1890-1899).

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/mark-twain-in-the-new-york-times-part-three/
This collection of articles by and about Mark Twain and his family was compiled by Barbara Schmidt, publisher of twainquotes.com. Included in Part Three of this chronological listing (1890-1899) are some of Twain’s short stories, speeches and letters, as they appeared in the New York Times in that decade. Of particular interest, at this time, is the legal challenge concerning the dramatic adaptation of "The Prince and the Pauper". The original microfiche articles are available at the New York Times' “TimesMachine” website: https://timesmachine.nytimes.com/browser/. ( John Greenman and Barbara Schmidt)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): https://timesmachine.nytimes.com/browser
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): wordperfect



    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!

    • say:
      "(date) (title)"
    END of recording:
    • At the end of the section, say:
      "End of [Section] (Date) (Title)"
    • If you wish, say:
      "Read by John Greenman"
    • At the end of the book, say (in addition):
      "End of [Section] (Date) (Title) and end of Mark Twain in the New York Times - Part Three (1890-1899) read by John Greenman."

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

Part Three will start being put together once Part Two is published.

If you have any interest in MC'ing or PL'ing this project please let me know.
I will provide the proof listener with the Microfiche articles which can always be doublechecked at the twainquotes.com compilation.
A complete zip file of the articles will be sent to the MC for archive.org linking.

There are 51 articles in Part Three.

Here are PL Notes for Sections 1 and 2. Will get to 3 later today.

Not sure if you mean to read the dash as 1890 to 1899, or 1890 through 1899. Just mentioning it.

Section 1
:49 It has only, you say It is only
5:02 and will flock to see an infant monarch, you say instant
5:10 Elsie Leslie, you say Elsie Elsie

Section 2
2:17 Mr House in his complaint swore that, you say wrote
3:35 made a bad botch of it, bad is missing
15:19 that there was further appropriation of, you say appreciation
Last few words of article are missing from the copy of the article I proof listened from, so I can't vouch for accuracy, "appeared for the defendant, Mr. Clemens, Mrs. Richardson, and Manager Froman."

4:09 and finding witchcraft punishable with death, you say by
8:03 either idea, you say ideas
9:57 and made a bad botch of it, bad is missing

Section 1 and 3 PL OK, no botches at all of any kind! :thumbs:

Section 2
correction at 3:35 has disappeared, leaving a blank space where a bad botch should be. :shock:
