The Christian Nurse and Her Mission in the Sick Room by Francois-Xavier Gautrelet (1807 - 1886). Translated by John Mason Neale (1818 - 1866)

François-Xavier Gautrelet was a French Jesuit priest whose legacy survives as being the inspiration and originator of the Apostleship of Prayer in 1844. In this volume he gives an extensive spritual and practical guide to nurses and others who minister to the sick and dying.
The translator, John Mason Neale, was a British Anglican who served as warden ot Sackville College, an almshouse at East Grinstead for many years. In 1854 he co-founded the Society of Saint Margaret, an order of women in the Church of England dedicated to nursing the sick. He is best known to the world, however, as the author and translator of many hymns including “O come, O come, Emmanuel.”
( Larry Wilson)
    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!): https://archive.org/details/TheChristianNurseAndHerMission/page/n5
    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.

May I PL section 7? I would also be interested in being the DPL, if you would like. (First time PL, please let me know if this is posted to the wrong place!)

I would be glad to have you PL that section.
I assume you've gone through the tutorial on proof listening?

I also need to know if you can check the specifications. It is not absolutely required for PL, but most of us do it because it is a lot easier that way. I use Checker, so it is easy just to drag the file over to the Checker window and get a readout on all the LV specs.

But, in any case, go ahead and take a listen, and if you're comfortable with it, we'll put you in as the DPL.

Great! I've downloaded Checker and will run the audio files as requested. The tutorial was pretty straight forward, and I've done audio editing before.

Section 7 sounds good. The volume was a bit shy of the 89 dB mark at 87.5 dB, but otherwise sounds great.

I expect this to be a short, but slow-moving project.
