Rapunzelina -

I haven't forgotten Lawrence. I searched high and low on the internet, but only found Work in collections still under copyright. I sent a note to WA, but have heard nothing from them. I haven't given up yet, but the month is coming to a close and offer this as a replacement -

The Death of the Old Year by Alfred, Lord Tennyson (1809-1892)
Text URL: Https://www.gutenberg.org/files/8601/8601-h/8601-h.htm#section53
Duration: 2:46
MP3 URL: https://librivox.org/uploads/rapunzelina/spc199_deathoftheoldyear_ps_128kb.mp3

I'll submit Lawrence again if I'm successful in tracking him down.
