U.S. Money vs. Corporation Currency, "Aldrich plan." by Alfred Owen Crozier (1863 - 1939).
TBC ( )
    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!): https://archive.org/details/usmoneyvscorpora00croz
    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.

    8. AFTER recording
      Need noise-cleaning?
      Listen to your file through headphones. If you can hear some constant background noise (hiss/buzz), you may want to clean it up a bit. The new (free) version 1.3.3. of Audacity has much improved noise-cleaning. See this LibriVox wiki page for a complete guide.

    9. Example ID3 V2 tags Adding ID3 tags are now optional. It happens automatically at cataloging. :) If you like to add them, here is information:
      (To find out more about ID3 tags, go to our wiki: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/What_is_ID3)
      Add the following tags to your .mp3 file (how you do this depends on which software you use – if you are unsure about ID3 tags, send me a message). Please mind upper and lower case!
      Artist: Alfred Owen Crozier
      Title: ## - [Section title]
      Album: U.S. Money

      Please ignore tags for Genre and Track Number - these will be filled in automatically at the cataloguing stage.

I'll claim sections 0 and 1, with the intention of picking up more.

Is the first part of the preface the "To Reverend Owen R. L. Crozier" page? I assume so, but just want to double check. Thanks!

-MNG
P.S. omg whoa, that octopus might give me nightmares...

P.p.s. also, any idea what the signature block at the bottom of the affidavit says?

Aug? Greg? E. Brown, Braun, hm?
Judge of Civil Courts
Milwaukee County, Wis.

Wow - thank you for getting this project started :clap:

Yes, the Preface is "To Reverend Owen Crozier ..."

With you on the Octopus ... Is this one better?

The signature ...
First one is August Frey
2nd ... Guy E B???
Judge of Civil Court ??? County, WS

I'd just say "Signature unclear. Stamped with the seal of Civil Court Milwaukee County"

Cheers

NB I'm still on this, life is happening! You Might not see it until after I move mid-October after my current job ends, though. Or I might submit them in a couple of days, just wanted to poke my head in and say hi. The recording is completed, editing half done, mic got packed and mailed ahead so it largely depends on whether or not I run into anything that needs a retake...

Cheers!

I am in fact alive! I’ve finally got things set up in VA and this is on my to do list. Might not get to it before the first of December due to nanowrimo sucking up my “extra” time. So sorry for the extra long delay and thanks for the poke!
