Here is Section 131, "Sally Simpkin's Lament." Poor Sally has lost half of her sailor man.

Here is Section 163, "Domestic Asides." It's a good thing that unwelcome visitor Mrs. Skinner can hear only the words, and not the thoughts, of her hostess.

All of your recordings are PL OK, Len.
I think this was my favorite, and so well expressed in your reading. Poor Sally Simpkin is a close second. I think that may have been a weekly or fortnightly selection a while back.

Hope you'll read some more....

Nicely read! PL OK
Just a note -- section numbers should have three digits for this project, 090, etc.

I'm taking the liberty of updating the MW for Carolin with this.
