Hello,
I wanted to ask if the following piece could be recorded for this collection?
Book Title: When Lint Was In The Bell.
Author: Archibald Mc'Ilroy (1860-1915)
I couldn't find the text on Project Gutenberg, but is found another URL link to the text: http://www.arts.ulster.ac.uk/ulsterscots/usep_pdf/Final%20English%20Texts/Archibald%20McIILroy,%20When%20lint%20was%20in%20the%20bell%20(1903).pdf Is this suitable, or is there an alternative link you might know about?
Here is my audio recording of chapter 1: https://librivox.org/uploads/lynnet/fc07_thevillageitself_cjph_128kb.mp3
Time: 16:46

Please, let me know what you think. I look forward to hearing back from you.

Kind regards,
Chad
