Work Of The Sisters During The Epidemic Of Influenza October, 1918 by Francis Edward Tourscher (1870 - 1939).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/work-of-the-sisters-by-francis-edward-tourscher/
In 1918 over 2,000 Roman Catholic nuns left their convents in the Philadelphia area to nurse the sick and dying of the influenza epidemic. Twenty-three of the sisters died because of their ministrations. This is an account of their heroic work published in the American Catholic Historical Society Of Philadelphia, 1919. “Gathered and arranged from reports of personal experiences of the sisters and contributed by request of the compiler.” The compiler/author was an academic/priest at Villanova University in Pennsylvania. Since there are no chapter headings, this recording uses the section headings of the book. ( David Wales and book's subtitle)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): https://archive.org/details/35010720R.nlm.nih.gov/page/n6/mode/1up
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Lots of rain for a few days; good for California. Recording going slower because harder to find a quiet space in the house. Had to remove from my usual space, kitchen/dining room, to a corner in the bedroom. New space might even be a bit easier to use.

With so many at home these days, quiet spaces may be harder to find.
