Thanks Bookwork360 :thumbs:

You did a good job reading the address.

I think it should probably be word perfect so I make the following notes about the reading.

Lincoln's Gettysburg Address, given November 19, 1863 on the battlefield near Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, USA
You said The Gettysburg Address by Abraham Lincoln. -- I might be okay but the full title is above.

1:20 that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain - it sounds like you said this dead

1:30 for the people ... shall not perish from this earth. – you said the earth

Hi Craig, Thanks for this! :) It makes a good companion piece with Justice Harlan's Dissent for vol. 076

Civil Rights Act of 1866
April 9, 1866
"During Reconstruction, Congress passed several statutes aimed at protecting the rights of the newly freed slaves, many of them over the veto of President Andrew Johnson. One such law was the Civil Rights Act of 1866, which declared that all people born in the United States were U.S. citizens and had certain inalienable rights, including the right to make contracts, to own property, to sue in court, and to enjoy the full protection of federal law. The act gave the U.S. district courts exclusive jurisdiction over criminal cases related to violations of the act, and concurrent jurisdiction, along with the U.S. circuit courts, of all civil and criminal cases affecting those who were unable to enforce in state court the rights guaranteed by the act. The Civil Rights Act began a gradual transformation of the federal courts into the primary forums for individuals to enforce their constitutional and statutory rights."

Hi Craig, Thanks for this selection from Amiel's Journal (Sept. 6, 1851)! :) It is PL Ok. I went back and listened to the entries for April 6-7, 1851 from the Journal, which you read for Vol. 047. Amiel seems to see-saw between dispair and hope?

April 6 -7, 1851: "Science is the power of man, and love his strength; man becomes man only by the intelligence, but he is man only by the heart. Knowledge, love, power—there is the complete life." https://librivox.org/short-nonfiction-collection-vol-047-by-various/.

Sept. 6, 1851: "...if abstract equality triumphs...[there] runs the risk of seeing no more true individuals. By continual leveling and division of labor, society will become everything and man nothing... But the animal in us must be satisfied first, and we must first banish from among us all suffering which is superfluous and has its origin in social arrangements, before we can return to spiritual goods."

Thanks Sue -

I think he did see-saw too but was essentially an optimist.

Good afternoon -

I just uploaded the following:

Title: Sufism Part 1 from A Dictionary of Islam, headword SUFI
Author: Thomas Patrick Hughes (1838-1911)
Wikipedia Article on Author: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Hughes_(priest)
Text URL: https://www.gutenberg.org/files/61526/61526-h/61526-h.htm#sufi
Duration: 47:42
MP3 URL: https://librivox.org/uploads/knotyouraveragejo/snf076_part1sufism_hughes_dwd_128kb.mp3

The author of this dictionary, Thomas Patrick Hughes, was something of an eccentric, which is why I included a link to his Wikipedia bio. I don't think there's a record for him on the Librivox site.

Thanks, Daniel for a little Sufi, a little Islam, a little Unitarianism and a little englightenment training :thumbs:

Hello,
Here is another contribution:
Author: Fredrich Nietzsche (1844-1900)
Title: The Antichrist
URL to text: http://www.gutenberg.org/files/19322/19322-h/19322-h.htm
Audio recording ready for PL'ing: https://librivox.org/uploads/knotyouraveragejo/snf076_theantichrist_nietzsche_cjph_128kb.mp3
Time: 18:12

Is it okay to record this piece as the author died in 1900, though the translator died in 1956? If it is not, please ignore this contribution, I will remove it if this is the case.

Kind regards,
Chad

Here's a little essay on the stories and poetry about a few of the main sewers/underground rivers in Victorian London.

The parent book is an investigation of the mechanism of sewers, water and gas supply in the capital. Chapter Two, which I have recorded, is titled "Gossip". I think this book is going to be my next solo; it's fascinating!

Underground London
Author: John Hollingshead - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Hollingshead
This edition published in 1862

The text is available here: https://www.google.com/books/edition/Underground_London/ghIHAAAAQAAJ

Hi Chad, Thank you for recording this selection by Nietzsche, translated by H. L. Mencken (1880-1956), which is available on Gutenberg. Gutenberg certifies that, for citizens of the United States, this work is in the public domain. Here is a good summary of U.S. copyright law from the U.S. Library of Congress blog: https://blogs.loc.gov/copyright/2019/01/publicdomain/

Gutenberg also states that persons living outside the United States must abide by the laws of the country where they live:
"The copyright laws of the place where you are located also govern
what you can do with this work. Copyright laws in most countries are in
a constant state of change. If you are outside the United States, check
the laws of your country in addition to the terms of this agreement
before downloading, copying, displaying, performing, distributing or
creating derivative works based on this work or any other Project
Gutenberg-tm work. The Foundation makes no representations concerning
the copyright status of any work in any country outside the United
States."

You, if I remember correctly from what you state on some of your recordings, reside in Northern Ireland, which has different copyright laws than the United States. Here is a reference source on UK Copyright Law: https://copyrightservice.co.uk/copyright/uk_law_summary. This source states that

"For literary, dramatic, musical or artistic works
70 years from the end of the calendar year in which the last remaining author of the work dies, or the work is made available to the public, by authorized performance, broadcast, exhibition, etc."


I am not a lawyer, but my lay person's conclusion is that it would not be technically legal for someone living in the UK to record this selection for LibriVox at this time. To be doubly sure, I will run your question by our metacoordinator, knotyouraveragejo. For the present, I am putting your contribution "on hold."
