State of the Union Addresses (1837 - 1844) by United States Presidents.

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/state-of-the-union-addresses-by-united-states-presidents-1837-1844-by-various/
The State of the Union address is a speech presented by the President of the United States to a joint session of the United States Congress, typically delivered annually. The address not only reports on the condition of the nation but also allows the President to outline his legislative agenda (for which he needs the cooperation of Congress) and national priorities. This album contains recordings of addresses from Martin van Buren and John Tyler. (Wikipedia and Linette Geisel)
This is the 4th out of 27 projects. Prior addresses are found here: https://librivox.org/search?q=state%20of%20the%20union&search_form=advanced
    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/5050
    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: Special - Please follow text while PLing. I'm not looking for word perfect. The language is sometimes awkward and following the text will help identify errors which the ear alone may not find.

      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!

Section Breakdown:
Note: If you are claiming all sections for an Address feel free to split the sections differently. Be sure to post your preferred start/stop for your DPL.

Martin van Buren, December 3, 1838
Part 1, 5519 words, Read through "There is no reason to suppose that legislation upon that branch of the subject would now be embarrassed by a difference of opinion, or fail to receive the cordial support of a large majority of our constituents."
Part 2, 5972 read from "The connection which formerly existed between the Government and banks was in reality injurious to both, as well as to the general interests of the community at large."

Martin van Buren, December 2, 1839
Part 1, 3746 words. Read through "Your early consideration of the subject is therefore once more earnestly requested."
Part 2, 3223 words. Read from "The present condition of the defenses of our principal seaports and navy-yards, as represented by the accompanying report of the Secretary of War, calls for the early and serious attention of Congress;" through "It is only by such a course that the confidence and good will of the community can be preserved, and in the sequel the best interests of the institutions themselves promoted."
Part 3, 6464 words. Read from "New dangers to the banks are also daily disclosed from the extension of that system of extravagant credit of which they are the pillars."

I just wanted to get an early claim into 1841.

I'm currently committed to a lengthy treatise on the planets, so before I forget...

How about 1837?

Glad to take an early claim on 1847. Polk is a talker at 16,414 words. :wink:

EDIT: lol, ok, 1841 it is!

Excellent! Thank you, Barry. I'll get the MW set up in the morning. :thumbs:

EDIT: That should do it. I don't know if Craig will be joining us for this edition. If possible, can we stay in the launch pad for a couple of days and try to attract a DPL?

If no one shows up I'll take the section :D
