Jerry McAuley: His Life and Work by Jerry McAuley (1839 - 1884) and others.

This project is now complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/life-and-work-by-jerry-mcauley/
Jerry McAuley was a missionary and founder of the Water Street Mission (later the New York City Rescue Mission), the first rescue mission in the United States. This book is a collection of his writings regarding his waywardness, his conversion and his missional work in New York both at the Water Street Mission and later at the Cremorne Mission. ( KHand)
  1. Text source (only read from this text!): https://archive.org/details/jerrymcauleyhisl00mcau/page/n8/mode/2up
    .
  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:
      "Jerry McAuley: His Life and Work, by Jerry McAuley and edited by Robert M Offord. [Chapter]"


    For the second and all subsequent sections, you may optionally use the shortened form of this intro disclaimer:
    • "Chapter [number] of Jerry McAuley: His Life and Work by Jerry McAuley and edited by Robert M Offord. 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]"

    • At the end of the book, say (in addition):
      "End of Jerry McAuley: His Life and Work, by Jerry McAuley and edited by Robert M. Offord. "

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

Kristen,

From soil conditions to rescue missions - you have wide ranging interests!

I'd be happy to MC this for you. I'll get your MW set up.

MaryAnn

Edit: OK, you are good to go. I suggest shortening the file names just a bit - don't think you need McAuley's name in there twice.

What? He really went to prison? Yikes!
Also that's interesting he was Catholic before- that is neat to hear his conversion from that. I also love that went to God; seeking him alone! Wow, he heard the voice of God. Such a neat story. intro and chapter 1 are PL OK.
