Just a couple of quick fixes needed here.

1. 3:56 - there is a repeat of "as soon as we had risen". Remove either version.
2. Please add about 4 seconds of silence to the end to get it to about 5 seconds in length.


Thanks,

M
Done!

Section 31. "The Servant"

That was beautifully read. I liked the emotion you put into it. :)

Just one little word keeping it from being PL OK.
0:32 - the word "African" is missing from the title of the recording. It should be "The African Servant". Simply insert it and you'll be PL OK on this recording.

Thanks,

Hello, may I please record section 20 - The Slave Shoemaker

Also, since this is my first recording can I be credited as AnthonyT for the catalog.

This was well read with only two minor corrections needed.

1. 6:28 - should read "assembled than could be accommodated in the house" . You have "accumulated in the house".
2. Please remove about 1.5 seconds at the end to make the silence at the end around 5 seconds.


Please upload the two corrections and you should be PL OK.

Thanks,

M

Here are:
Section 58:
https://librivox.org/uploads/mightyfelix/narrativesofcoloredamericans_58_mott_128kb.mp3
4:52

Section 59:
https://librivox.org/uploads/mightyfelix/narrativesofcoloredamericans_59_mott_128kb.mp3
6:20

Section 70:
https://librivox.org/uploads/mightyfelix/narrativesofcoloredamericans_70_mott_128kb.mp3
3:58

I'm thinking that it might be an idea to split Section 58 into Section 58a and Section 58b. The reason is that, without the benefit of the text, it may appear to the listener that the person described in the second part is the same person described in the first part, and that would be quite a terrible mistake to make. If you would like it split (and appropriately renamed in the recording), please let me know.
