The Authoritative Life of General William Booth by George Scott Railton (1849 - 1913).

William Booth, together with his wife Catherine founded a small mission in London which eventually expanded to become a global movement, carrying the Christian gospel message of salvation and holiness under the banner of the Salvation Army. While never losing his sharp focus on personal transformation that saved men and women from the depths of despair, Booth put faith into action by caring for the temporal needs of society wherever the Army gained a foothold. George Scott Railton was the first Commissioner in the Salvation Army and second in command, working closely and intimately with Booth, and traveling extensively around the world. He presents here a comprehensive biography of the man who changed history; Included are many tributes to the General after his death, and further chapters on the spirit of the Army and its work. ( Larry Wilson)

    3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim.

Hi Larry,
I'll MC this for you. Since you have a DPL, you can go straight to Readers Wanted.
Have a good night!
Amy :)

Thanks, Amy!
Always great to work with you.

I've decided to split one more of the long chapters, so added another section to the MW.

We are now READY FOR READERS. :D

The preface is PL OK. I'll get to the closing section and your Irish poems this evening, Larry.

Hello, I would like to "grab" section 19 Japanese Heroism, if I may. I am a newbie here. Thank you in advance for all the help.

Section 37: Larry, your reading of the text is PL OK, but there are some problems with the chapter numbering and ending. If my reading of Roman numerals is correct, this must be either "Chapter 28, part 3" or a separate addendum without any numbering. Too, you've forgotten to say "End of The Authoritative Life of General William Booth, by George Scott Railton" at the end. :)

The url also has 36 in it where it should have 37.

Sure, I'd be glad to have you read this chapter!

Before I can officially assign this, I need to add you to the LibriVox catalog. So let me know how you would like to be listed. Many of us just use our real names, since this is how we are credited for our work, but you may choose any pseudonym or nickname that you wish.

Well, I did forget that, didn't I :shock:
And, I was going by the section number, which, as you pointed out, doesn't work.
I think I will call it "Appendix" for the recording, because that is really what it is even though not so named in the text.

Thanks again for your good PL. Your're the best. :9:
