May I please claim chapter 15 "The Exploits of Captain Avery"?

Thanks!
Thank you, April!
I've put you in for this section.

And, I would be most happy to welcome you aboard as our DPL. :clap:

I will, of course, PL your recordings.
You now have access to the bridge, I mean, the MW, April! Thank you so much!

I would like to claim Chapters 14 and 19.


I have uncovered something interesting about this book. The cover of the book indicates that it was published in MDCCCCXXIX. Really? Check it out.

1929? If it is on PG, and the date is something newer than 1924, they have cleared it. Of course, my Roman numerals could be off, so reader beware! :D

I already have you in for 5,6,7 but I've added these if you want them

In regard to the date: I put that in a Roman Numeral converter and it came up as "Invalid" And converts 1929 to MCMXXIX.

I see I have an original put date of 1917, but I can't remember where I got that. I also overlooked the fact that this is an excerpt from the author's larger book, Romance of Piracy, which is already in the LV catalog. So, that may be the alternate pub date.

At least this is Gutenberg designated as public domain.

That's why it would not convert for me! I knew it didn't look right! But then, I have seen people make up Roman numerals incorrectly, so it could be that someone was trying to make 1929, or 1919, incorrectly. I have seen IV as IIII, which makes me look at it sideways.

Thank you, Russ!
These are in the MW Ready for PL

Just to let you know, there is an error in your file name for Section 7 -- one hyphen instead of the underscore. Our MC can take care of this, so no need to upload again unless there are other corrections needed.

Newish reader here. Dare I take an opening chapter? If so, I would like to claim chapter 1.
