Well Jo and Sue,

Here finally ( a week after posting the question about it) is the 'two-piecer' that I asked about. It is really an amazing story that I was really not familiar with before we got a 'taste' of it when we were in the Maritimes this past fall. This is a 'first-hand' relating of the story of their expulsion by the British. What is interesting is that in Wikipedia they describe Evangeline as a fictional character while the woman telling this story says that Evangeline was a real person who she, the narrator, adopted and who died in Louisiana. Quite a tale of hardship.

Thanks, Betty! :) This is an engaging history of Washington D.C., and the "what to see" recommendations would, I think, still be useful.
For some reason, the archive.org copy of the book has been taken down-- no reason given; so I went to Hathi for a copy, and decided to listen along to be sure the copy we would be using for the Librivox reference was the same as what you read. Here it is: https://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=uc1.$b137920&view=1up&seq=162. In the process of listening to your recording, I found that your recording was word perfect, so I'm calling it PL OK! (Craig has been doing some heavy lifting on the PL front lately, for which he deserves my thanks!).

The story of Acadia part 1 is PLOK Wayne :thumbs:

The British had conquered Acadia in 1710. Over the next 45 years, the Acadians refused to sign an unconditional oath of allegiance to Britain. Many were influenced by Father Jean-Louis Le Loutre, who from his arrival in 1738 until his capture in 1755, preached against the 'English devils'. Father Le Loutre led the Acadian people during the Acadian Exodus, as an act of defiance towards British demands and oppression.

The Acadians today live predominantly in the Canadian Maritime provinces (New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia), as well as parts of Quebec, Canada, and in Louisiana and Maine, United States.

Well read Wayne.

Hi Betty, Your recipe selections always seem to evoke childhood memories in me. Homemade peach ice cream... Jane Hamilton: "The peaches must be perfectly ripe." Exactly so! :D

Betty, I think we can presume this is the authoress;

Ice Creams and Ices is well read and PLOK Betty :thumbs:

Thanks.

Craig

On March 5, 1735, George Mason III died when his boat capsized while crossing the Potomac. His widow Ann raised their son George (then 10) and two younger siblings as co-guardian with lawyer John Mercer, who was their uncle by marriage, having wed George Mason III's sister Catherine. Ann Mason selected property at Chopawamsic Creek (today in Prince William County, Virginia) as her dower house and there lived with her children and administered the lands that her elder son would control upon reaching his 21st birthday.

In 1736, George began his education with a Mr. Williams, hired to teach him for the price of 1,000 pounds (450 kg) of tobacco per annum.

Hello!

I'd like to submit the following for this collection:

The Discovery of Witches
by Matthew Hopkins

https://librivox.org/uploads/knotyouraveragejo/snf076_discoveryofwitches_hopkins_ag_128kb.mp3
Length: 23:52

Text Source: https://www.gutenberg.org/files/14015/14015-h/14015-h.htm

What a godawful dude.

A couple of notes:

- As per the transcribers note, I left the instance of "Question" instead of "Query"

- There were a few challenging sections here, what with archaic spellings / pronunciations and unfamiliar syntax. I did my best to stay verbatim and researched meaning / pronunciation as best as I could, but there were certainly points where I had to go with an educated guess. If anything sounds funky or if the intention isn't entirely clear, please let me know and I'll see what I can do.

Thanks!

Matthew Hopkins (c. 1620 – 12 August 1647) was an English witch-hunter whose career flourished during the English Civil War.
