To whom it may concern,

In the MW, the 'listen' link for sections 8 and 9 both are the recording of section 9. Craig probably isn't very happy doing almost an hour of recording and not having it included. :wink:

Wayne
Thanks Wayne :thumbs:

I fixed it :D

Sue & Craig,

Happy almost first day of summer (at least in this hemisphere :D ). I've been listening to Daniel Stashower's The Hour of Peril - The Secret Plot to Murder Lincoln Before the Civil War, and in looking for a PD version of the tale to read for LibriVox, I discovered this piece from an unexpected source: the CIA! It's short and to the point, and if it lacks the dramatic punch of Stashower's version, it has the virtue of being a US government publication, hence, public domain.

Saving Mr. Lincoln by Central Intelligence Agency (2007)

Hi Chad, Thank you for this account of events in the lives of Jesse and Frank James! :) I have put your selection in the Magic Window.

Would you please be so kind as to attend to the edits which Craig pointed out to you [on page 7 in the thread.] which are needed on your previous contribution, Poets

Thanks for the selection from Zarathustra Chad :thumbs:

A few errors noted:

At the BEGINNING say: "[Title of Work], by [Author Name]" "This is a Librivox recording. All Librivox recordings are in the public domain. For more information or to volunteer, please visit Librivox.org"

3:38 Ah, how I am weary of all the inadequate that is insisted on as actual! Ah, how I am weary of the poets! You said how am I weary

Craig
Thou askest why? I do not belong to those who may be asked after their Why.

Principally, you just forgot the LibriVox intro in the Poets recording. Since you read the intro in the Jesse James recording, it should be a simple matter to make a copy of it and insert it in to the reading of Poets. There is one other small edit in Poets needed. The revised recording of Poets is due by June 26, following the 2-week deadline for edits.

Thank you for your contributions to volume 075.

Sue,

I know I said that the earlier one was 'my contribution', but I found this one and just had to add it. I am reading "The Miracle in Philadelphia", and yesterday my wife asked if I could find anything in LV that was 'historical' to contribute. Well, I found this and just 'had' to contribute it. Even with all the U.S. history I have studied and read, I had never heard this story. It was a very important event in US history.

Hi Wayne, Well, I like enthusiasm! :D I'm glad the prompt from your wife resulted in this story of John Q. Adams and his fight for the right to petition.

"[Adams'] fight for the right of petition is one to be studied and remembered, and Mr. Adams made it practically alone. The slaveholders of the South and the representatives of the North were alike against him... but the great body of the New England people were with him. ... He was an old man, with the physical infirmities of age.. his eyes were weak and streaming; his hands were trembling; his voice cracked in moments of excitement... but his vigorous mind never worked more surely and clearly than when he stood alone in the midst of an angry House, the target of their hatred and abuse."

A long while back (2011) I read, for Librivox, a volume of letters written by Adams' wife Abigail to him during the Revolution. I see I called her correspondence "letters of a vigorous mind." They were a remarkable couple.

Thanks for the lesson on perseverance and right principle Wayne :D

PLOK :thumbs:
After the beginning of the earnest agitation of Northern abolitionists against the institution of slavery in the United States in 1831, over 130,000 petitions of various kinds poured into the United States House of Representatives and the United States Senate praying for the abolition or the restriction of that "peculiar institution", as it was called in the South.
