45 - Art PL OK!

41 - Poesy:

Please give the full description of Poesy at the beginning of the file:

Poesy, a slender girl in robe of delicate pink and green, flowers in her hair and scroll in left hand
Please check the last 4 lines, starting at 00:46:

And I have not forgotten thee (I hear forgot?)
The negro's harp of minstrelsy
shall ring with strength throughout the land (I hear strings/string/stringth?? )
Till laurel-crowned the poets stand

Thank you ladies! :D
Here are the corrections to Poesy

Sounds like a time-paradox theme. You know, of the "I'm My Own Grandpa" sort of thing. Though somehow Kitty "Siwen vun Néng" has harnessed her Borg skills to swap about X and Y chromosomes.

I do hope someone will take up this orphaned role before we all get plunged into a similar but parallel mirror universe.


Cheers,
Chris

Todd, here is Nance Butterworth, a bigger part than I initially thought :shock: but I had a great time bossing my farmhands around, I don't know why, it kinda came naturally :mrgreen:

Hope it's to your liking:

Perfect. Exactly what the play needed (and you got to yell at someone other than me for a change). PL OK!

Thanks, Todd

if you want to be yelled at you can still take the role of John Royle. :mrgreen: It has the added bonus that I ask you to forgive me in the end. (and you get the girl !)

Thanks for the PL, Todd :)

I discovered George Logan's birth and death dates! He was born in 1866 and he died in 1939. I found out a bunch of other interesting things about him as well. Might it be possible for the blurb on his author page to be updated? Here is a suggested expanded blurb:

"George Logan was a Scottish furniture designer, painter, and poet who worked for Wylie & Lochhead from 1882 until 1937 and helped bring this firm international renown. A lifelong Salvationist, Logan was a regular contributor to The Darkest England Gazette, a weekly publication issued by The Salvation Army between July 1893 and June 1894. He later wrote many poems and prayers that were published under the pen name 'Mermaid' in the Greenock Telegraph, a local daily newspaper, starting around the time of World War I."

Here are some sources for this information:

I appreciate you adding that information, Todd!

On a separate note, may I narrate "Heirs of Slavery"?
