Thanks,

Larry,

Sections 0, 29, and 33 are PL OK.

Section 71 - has one minor little issue and one bigger one. The small one is there is about an extra 0.5 seconds at the start. The bigger one is at the end.
~1:28 you have M.S. Sutton instead of M.S. Wood. Sorry, I can't let that one pass. :)

You were right. They are quite interesting to listen to. Although, for what I can tell from what I've heard and read, there seems to be a bit of stereotyping going on, "massa" anyone - I really doubt the subjects of the tales were all illiterate.

Anyway - nice recordings, except for the name.

Thanks,

M

Section 25 is also PL OK.

May I claim these sections?

24 Repentance and Amendment in a Colored School at Christiansburg
63 Faith of a Poor Blind Woman/African Schools in New York
Thank you, and welcome!
I've assigned these two sections to you.
Thank you Larry. :)

Quick question...

The end of Section 24 is signed "—Am. Freedman."
Is Am. an abbreviation for something and how should I say it?

Sorry if that's a silly question! :mrgreen:
