The Weird Picture by John R. Carling (1880? - 1920?).

Frank Willard is studying in Germany when he receives a letter summoning him home for Christmas and for his brother George's wedding. His bride is to be Daphne, the love of Frank's life, leaving Frank conflicted. He decides to attend, but what has happened to George? ( Lynne Thompson)
    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/61141
    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.

Wait, Kirk, I listened again. You missed a huge bulk of text between the letter from George to Frank's arrival in London. I mean you missed the text from page 2 until page 14. I can coppy the text if you want. I am sorry. I had to listen again because the two parts didn't connect right.

Not a problem, I can find it. Do you happen to know how many minutes in to George and Frank's arrival in London?

No, you read the letter and then we came into all the missing text. You got the first and last pages of the chapter.

I thought it was short. I converted it to pdf, then separated the chapters with Preview (Mac).. I thought that is was strange and just a rough transition. Thanks, I'll take of it in a while.
