Thanks folks! I know it’s a lot of work making these kinds of edits, but I’d really like to do Wodehouse justice.

Kevin, I think with this many edits the chapter would probably need a full PL anyway - if you are too busy I can do it.

It's a deal! You do Chapter 10 and I'll do Chapter 11.

Hahaha! Chapter 10 has 28 'PSmiths.' I don't know about Ch. 11 yet!

Here is the revised Chapter 11 (length 57:50)

https://librivox.org/uploads/maryannspiegel/leaveittopsmith_11_wodehouse_128kb.mp3

The areas that had 'Psmith' in them were:
- introduction
- 39:30 to 50:15 (pages 260-265)
- 52:21 to 54:40 (pages 266-268)

Okey doke ... here is the first corrected version. This is Chapter Ten with 'Smith' not "Psmith' in the audio (length 1:03:10)

https://librivox.org/uploads/maryannspiegel/leaveittopsmith_10_wodehouse_128kb.mp3

Figured out an edit system that makes the replacements not onerous at all. Chapter 11 should be ready this week too.

cheers

Hi, are you sure this is the corrected file? The very first Psmith I heard still has an audible P, at 2:42 in.

phooey - I must have missed one. The introduction says ‘Smith’ so it’s the file I intended to send. Will replace the word and repost today.

Well, hopefully it's third time lucky. I have corrected the 2:42 'Psmith' and uploaded Chapter 10 again.

One more missed "P" at 1:01:44, I'm afraid. The rest of the text is PL OK - interesting plot twist!

Thank you for persevering through an entire listen. I will correct that one and re-post tomorrow.

Chapter 11 has only one unwanted 'P.' (Poor poignant pitiable plosive.)

It can be found at 44:07 (or thereabouts.)

And here, hopefully, is a "purged-of-P" version of Chapter 11:
