I scanned the text before signing up and noted the "Och" and wrongly thought this was a scottish part. I recorded it in a bit of a scottish accent, then discovered half way through my assumption was wrong. Oh well, re-did. I'm afraid my Irish accent is even worse than my scottish.

Kenrick acts 2 and 4 are PL OK

PL Notes for Act 5

Beginning of file missing lines
To be sure, misfortune isn't a neat touchstone to try friendship upon. Faith, now, all my loving friends deserve a decent kicking ; and, by my soul ! I believe they expect it from my hands ; for I no sooner said the word " Lend," but they all turned their backs to me ! Och, my poor Miss Caroline ! what will I do, now you are a-ground, to keep your pretty little chin above water? If we could have kept the brave Mr. Henry Morland's chin above water, now ? But he's gone — he's gone ! and twenty Humane Societies couldn't bring him back. How my poor ould bones ache ! and, sure, the biggest bone about me is in my heart, for that aches more than all the other half of my body ! I'll make bold just to rest me a bit at this door. Don't be frightened, good gentlemen within ; for I an't coming to borroAv of you ! (sitting down on the steps of a door, n.) Faith, this step is like my dear friends' hearts ; for, by St. Patrick ! 'tis as cold and- as hard as a hailstone !

End of file missing lines

Och, bother ! — you have so many virtues here,
There won't be any left for me, I fear.
Burn him, who leaves, I can't say more or less,
A patron, friend, or female, in distress !

Doctor Pangloss recorded. I assumed that anyone who looked like the picture in the first posting had very little dignity to lose.... Must edit - far too many hems.

Thanks, Todd
