Hi, I've done a new recording and I think this one is better (and will hopefully pass!)

https://librivox.org/uploads/aradlaw/lonelyhouse_dickinson_mf_128kb.mp3

Length is: 1:40

If it acceptable, please delete the old one.

Thank you Larry, at 1:25 you've read "..the old couple, just astir," the text reads " While the old couple, just astir,"

Welcome to Librivox Faith, good first reading :D
There are a couple of technical items to address...
- the file is in stereo, we need a mono recording (this is usually set in preferences, depending on your recording software)
- the bitrate is 123 kbps (variable), we need a bitrate of 128 kbps (constant) this is set when you save/export the file as an mp3
- please give the file duration with your upload link
Could you make those changes and upload please? (using the same filename)

You can find feedback on your one minute test here. :wink:
