Have made your amendments and just to make things simpler have replaced the voice credit for all sections:
thank you, perfects edits and now all is PL ok. :thumbs: You did not have to reupload sections that are already PL ok. The voice credit can just as well be cut out from the second act. I already made a note for Todd in the MW.

Yes. But you are already in Act 4, so use a different voice for this Act 3 character.

Thanks, Todd
I have recorded this part with a different voice, as requested:

:lol: I love that you swap "my" to "me" everywhere here, to give Dick a more working-class demeanour. :thumbs: Nice touch to make him distinct and original. Highly enjoyed it !

I have one small note, but my ears may have tricked me, so feel free to ignore it:

> at 0:33: "Sally is very thick with Mr. Gibson" - I think I hear "tick" which sounds odd

thanks, David !

I wondered if you would ask me about that word. I'm originally from Newfoundland and, for this role, I was drawing on a traditional Newfoundland English accent, which often pronounces "th" sounds as "t" sounds. Please let me know if you think the pronunciation is too confusing, as I am quite content to re-record it.

ah ok !!! I didn't realize the butler was imported into England from Newfoundland ! (who could have guessed ?) That changes everything, of course I wouldn't dare to correct him on his original use of dialect ! It's PL ok then. Let's have Sally tick Mr Gibson, I'm sure he will find it agreeable :lol:

Thank you

Both acts PL ok. Thank you

Saville, Act 1, duration 6:48

https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/bellesstratagem_saville_1_128kb.mp3

By the way, I believe one of Saville's lines is mislabeled Servant. It's toward the end of Act 1, Scene 1, and begins "Five minutes! Zounds!..." The Servant has just exited, so I think it's Saville's (and I recorded it).

Thank you.

And the reaction of recording anything in doubt is a good rule to follow for anybody in these old plays - I'll straighten it all out later when I edit.

Thanks, Todd
