Harper's Young People, Vol. 01, Issue 24, April 13, 1880 by Various ( - )
Harper's Young People, an illustrated weekly publication for children, includes serialized and one-off short stories, tales from history, poetry, puzzles, and other fun. This 24th issue of the serial was published on April 13th, 1880 and in its pages it contains the continuing story of a young sailor now traversing the Sargasso Sea, the tale of the daring escape of two rebels with the help of a clever and brave hero, an account of the early life of George Washington, a dip in an aquarium containing some of the sea's most amazing creatures, and much more. This periodical was published by Harper & Brothers, known today for their publications Harper's Bazaar and Harper's Magazine. (Summary by Jill Engle)
  1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    -
  2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    -
  3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.

  4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/28778

Alcohol and Maths don't mix. So never drink and derive.

Hi,

I would like to claim section 2 if I could. I read the last installment of "across the ocean" from the last issue, and it would be fun to see continuity between 2 issues of the publication.

Thanks,
Paul
