Horse Stealer's Daughter! Hard to say, "I meant to say that!" Hahah!
Fair trading, would you have time to PL my upcoming contribution, Don Rodriguez 6th Chronicle? 36:00
There will be no rush on that, though it is quite chivalric and a charming love story I think you will enjoy.
I'd love to PL. Anytime, you know.
E agora, José?

Tremendous. Probably the best I've heard you do. Really a mastery of discretion, timing, and effect. I hope that one day you'll do the whole collection of tales. PL OK!

Thank you, Kevin. You are good for the ego! Dunsany is a lot of fun to read, very dramatic and expressive and often ridiculous, which I like. I am planning to record another Dunsany book, The King of Elfland's Daughter, which comes PD on January 1st.

As to Don Rodriguez, Chronicles of Shadow Valley, LV has a wonderful recording of the whole book, read by Ed Humpal, who really does a tremendous job!!!!

Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1806-1861)
Title: Sonnets from the Portuguese

Audio recording ready for PLing: https://librivox.org/uploads/philchenevert/lovestories1_X_browning_cjph_128kb.mp3 Time: 01:13.
I look forward to hearing back from you.
Kind regards,
Chad

PL Notes Sonnet 10
:26 worthy of acceptation, you say appreciation

However, after PLing it, Chad, I am going to recommend you submit this poem over to the Short Poetry Collection, as it isn't really a story.
Here's the link viewtopic.php?f=28&t=76036
There is ALWAYS a poetry collection brewing at LV, anytime you feel the yen to record one. :D
And I look forward to getting a story from you soon.

Darn, you've given me an idea for a poetic love story I'd like to read, except I've already done my 3 for this collection. :(

Thanks for your feedback on this poem anyway!

PL Notes The Horse Dealer's Daughter

Quintessential Lawrence!!!!! Thanks for this contribution. Dr. Strange Love, eh? Now, as to my notes:

7:15 with his knees stuck out, you say struck
15:44 Why should she answer to anybody? You added to, which I recommend you delete to, for the story only says "she doesn't talk to anybody."
16:29 saddened dark green fields, you say satin
31:49 And something stubborn in him could not give away, stubborn is missing.
39:42 to rub himself down and dress, down is missing
40:02 dress of black voile, you say foil. Dressed in foil?

Beginning and end, the piece seems to say "The Horse Stealer's Daughter". I have a forum post called "word slurs" with a collection of my own slurs, and a few people have added more in. I hope you will consider adding this one here:
viewtopic.php?f=24&t=69510&p=1484222&hilit=word+slurs#p1484222

And fixing it here!
Time to do this! Sorry it's taken so long!

I'll be right back.
E agora, José?

I wish it did, but there is a mystery ….. the times don't match up in these 2 places, leading me to believe you might have futzed with the tempo here and there, and/or accidently cut out some phrases.

31:49 I found at 32:00, a +11 second difference, was something added, or tempo slowed down?
39:42 I found at 39:08, a -34 second difference. Was something cut out?
but 40:02 is in about right place and the overall file length is right.
Very mysterious. I suppose I could PL this from scratch if you can't explain these discrepancies.

Oh, I don't want you to have to do the whole thing. I will investigate.

I have no explanation what what went wrong yesterday.

This link below should have all the corrections and is only some two seconds off from the original.

Let me know if there is a problem, please.
