Please note that H.C. Bailey died in 1961. This work is not Public Domain in death+70 countries, e.g. Europe.
Mr. Fortune is a physician crime solver, using early forensic science techniques. This second volume brings seven more cases for him to solve for the police. ( Lynne Thompson)
    1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/60096
    5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

Certainly. This is too long to go in one section, so if you can split the story wherever seems appropriate, roughly 50/50.

"Certainly. This is too long to go in one section, so if you can split the story wherever seems appropriate, roughly 50/50."

Will do. Should I just stop the first part and resume the second with no conclusion nor reintroduction?
If you'd rather a finish and new intro, should I call them "Part 1" and "Part 2"?

Sheesh, haste again making waste. Was responding to a number of Notifications and neglected to remember that you have already assigned Section numbers and so I'll use them as posted in the MW.

Say “end of section 4”, then start section 5 in the usual way, with “The Case of the Young Doctor part 2” as the chapter title.

Lynne,

Here is my attempt at Section 6.

https://librivox.org/uploads/lynnet/mrfortunespractice_06_baileyt_128kb.mp3

Time 47:42.

This my longest so far. We will see how it goes. To me, for the most part, longer is harder. The editing seems to take longer on a percentage basis.

Section 6
There is quite a bit of background noise. Please do another round of cleaning https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VFSg9o37HMw

Otherwise no issues :thumbs:
