Yes, it is easy to forget, just ask Lmnei about my timing forgetfulness issues. Anyway, the time is 0.58. Sorry for not putting it. :oops:

Hi Kevin, could I do a second short one, please?

St Swithin’s Day
from Holidays & Happy-Days (1901), by Hamish Hendry (dates unknown)
http://www.gutenberg.org/files/37216/37216-h/37216-h.htm#ST_SWITHINS_DAY

It’s quite short, and I’m sure I’ll be able to upload it before next Wednesday’s closing date.

Are fairy tales applicable if the important stuff happens when the character is 15?

That would be stretching matters a bit too far. Even for me!

It is the World English Bible.
Friend, the World English Bible holds a significant thread of ownership over its creation. That is, its name. I am very reluctant to use a text here that cannot be named and then altered. Our policy has always been to record material that can be freely released with no claims being made upon them. Others can use the recorded material however and in anyway they wish.

On a side note, is your interest in this chapter of the New Testament of particular interest to you or has it been chosen simply because it holds the number 15? As the chapter and verse numbers of the Bible are a relatively recent invention, I would ask you to please find something else of interest to you to record.

Oh. Then which version of the Bible would be a good one to use besides the KJV? Because I really do like this passage.

I dug a little deeper and see that LibriVox did record the World English Bible some years ago, so it must have been cleared for use. We're all okay.

Thanks for your contribution.
