Error report:

The beginning of Chapter 9 is missing. Can someone please send me a complete version or correct it?

Thanks very much!

Thank you for letting us know, faculaganymede. I can't help you with a full file, I'm afraid (and I'm not sure that it looks terribly promising for a quick fix :() - the following is information from the 'user-end' check I just did for whoever might be able to pick this up and help further:

All three formats are affected, starting mid-sentence. The stated run-time, 17:25, is the time of this curtailed recording. (Catalogue page here: http://librivox.org/the-adventures-of-ulysses-by-charles-lamb/ )
The reader was Rebecca (RebeccaD) who doesn't seem to have been around for quite a while (Adventures of Ulysses was catalogued on 10 May 2007).
Forum thread for it is here http://librivox.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=7323 - looks like it was kayray that catalogued it though Cori was MC.

I can email Rebecca tonight and see if she's got a backup -- I've not got one myself.
There's honestly no such thing as a stupid question -- but I'm afraid I can't rule out giving a stupid answer : : To Posterity and Beyond!

Any word from Rebecca?

This has been hanging around a long time.

There are only about 500 words missing from the beginning of the chapter. Assuming there was no reply from Rebecca, I'm happy to record them and splice them in if there are no objections.

OK! Here is the amended file, The added part is the first 4:07. I have used Rebecca's intro.

I will upload to archive tomorrow if no-one has any objection. If someone has time to give it a quick listen, I should be grateful.
