Catherine Booth by Mildred Duff (1860 - 1932).

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/catherine-booth-by-mildred-duff/
Catherine Booth (1829 – 1890) was the wife of William Booth, the founder of the Salvation Army in England. She was a full-partner with her husband in the ministry and work of the movement which from the beginning welcomed women into full ministry and offices of the church. Her influence set the tone for much of the Army's ground-breaking work. Mildred Duff presents here a short but thorough account of Catherine's life and ministry. ( Larry Wilson)
    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/7125
    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.

      Prospective Prooflisteners: Please read the Listeners Wanted FAQ before listening! Level of prooflistening requested: standard

With Catherine Booth's book Godliness nearly complete, I thought it time to do this short biography by Mildred Duff.

Oh, thank you so much!

This has been strangely slow getting started after a lot of interest in recent projects related to the Salvation Army.

That might have to do with the March cleanup. People may have been focused on finishing projects rather than claiming in newer ones.
