Potash and Perlmutter: Their Copartnership Ventures and Adventures by Montague Glass (1877 - 1934).


Quote:
Montague Glass was a lawyer who eventually abandoned the practice of law to write full time. He wrote a series of stories in the New York Post about a pair of popular characters in the predominantly Jewish garment trade. Many of the plots were derived from trade problems he saw as a lawyer. This is the first book of the collected stories; his Potash and Perlmutter stories were also made into stage plays and even movies that were very popular in their time. (ToddHW)


This book is complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page: http://librivox.org/potash-and-perlmutter-their-copartnership-ventures-and-adventures-by-montague-glass/

  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/18164
  5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

Chapter 4 - very very nice reading.

@ 26:36, text is "Anna, you want to work by Mr. Potash's lady?" but I hear "Anna, you want to work by Mrs. Potash's lady?" Minor change but it did catch my attention. Take a listen and see if you want to change it.

Thanks, Todd

Thanks, Todd! I will fix. I am glad the reading is OK. It is a voice that we Jewish seniors know well, but which is dying out.
