Here are my three ladies for this month.

Sulpicia, an ancient Roman

Anne Bradstreet, first Puritan poet in American literature

Phillis Wheatley, sold into slavery around the age of 8 and shipped to the US

Let me know if you want any of the titles changed as some were really long and one was somewhat nonexistent.
Thank you, M! Very touching poetry reading!

One PL note about the intros missing the "read for LibriVox dot org by [your name]", or just "read for LibriVox dot org" if you would rather not use a name.

About Sulpicia's poem, this particular English translation is not in the public domain (not published before 1925).
I have found another one if you'd like to read this one :?: (XI Epistle): https://archive.org/details/poemsofcatullu00catu/page/166/mode/2up
Thank you!
I can't believe I forgot that line in all three poems. I have added it to the two easy ones and will have to get you the Sulpicia poem later. New times are in bold.

An Epitaph on my dear and ever honoured Mother Mrs. Dorothy Dudley, who deceased Decemb. 27, 1643, and of her age, 61 by Anne Bradstreet (1612-1672)

That's the key!

Yes, it sounds just fine in volume :thumbs: What kind of problems did you face? Was too soft and had to amplify?

The recording is now in the Magic Window, marked PL OK! :clap:

I figured out I was worried about getting too loud I suppose. I amplified. And I used the envelope too.

And I have found out with back ground noise something too. I only have a notebook that I'm using right now. If the power is plugged in and my head phones it adds extra buzz.... I thought duh. I should've already thought of that lol. Ive got an external sound card now. Helped tremendously!

Here is the revised version of the poem by Sulpicia. My apologies for not catching that the first version was a newer translation.

XI Epistle, Sulpicia to Cerinthus by Sulpicia (c. 40 BC-?)

I accidently loaded it incorrectly the first time. The following file can be deleted: https://librivox.org/uploads/aradlaw/spc209_xiepistle_mlm_128kb.mp3
