Phoebe, Junior, by Margaret O. Oliphant (1828 - 1897)

I’m assigning those sections. There is no limit, but I’d prefer you didn’t claim more than a couple at a time.

Hi Howard, that was a lovely reading.
Just a one little note:

3:00 I hear "the moisture in the eye, and struggles the outcry", text says "the moisture in the eye, and strangles the outcry "
