Now I would like to claim section 77: A rescue at the battle of Prestonpans (1745)

I looked up the pronounciation of two places I hadn´t heard of before so I get them right.

Here we go, Lady Macbeth wishes you lend ear to her fell plans once again: https://librivox.org/uploads/kitty/worldstory_volume10_053_ladymacbeth_tappan_128kb.mp3
I adore the old word "fell" extremely. It has such a cool arcane ring to it. :9: I only thought it would get used in movies like The hobbit :lol: I also have a tendency to use such words in everyday speech, but sometimes people look at me and probably wonder where I got my vocabulary from :mrgreen:

Thanks, Eva, Lady Macbeth now PL ok.

I hope that the volume is within range. I didn´t include my username because it said "if you wish", hope that is fine.
in fact the volume is a bit over our accepted limits, so your hunch was right. Are you using Audacity ? There is a plug-in to calculate the volume gain:
Replay Gain plugin for Audacity: - http://forum.audacityteam.org/download/file.php?id=4668

1. Save the file to your computer - your desktop or somewhere where you can easily find it.
2. Now browse to the folder in which Audacity is installed. It's probably in C:\Program Files\Audacity) and then open the Plug-Ins folder.
3. Drag the file you saved into the Plug-Ins folder.
4. When next you start up Audacity, you will be able to select the whole recording (Ctrl+A on Windows), then go to Analyze | ReplayGain, and it'll tell you how much to amplify your file to get to about 89 dB.
So here I would say: decrease by -3 dB and you'll be nicely inside our limits.

For the reading of the poem, it was highly enjoyable to listen to, thank you so much. Quite a tragic incident.

I only have one thing to add:

> at 0:31: (p. 324) could you please also insert the date "1513", between the title and the author, like I mentioned in the MW

The rest is perfect :)
Now I would like to claim section 77: A rescue at the battle of Prestonpans (1745)
yes, I'll assign it to you, thank you !

Here are sections 7, 30 and 31 :)
excellent, Kiki, thank you so much. These Puritan names are simply hilarious :lol: and the Parliament section reminded me uncannily of Brexit. Yes, history always repeats itself.

All three sections PL ok :)

Now I have uploaded section 65 again. My microphone broke so I got a new one, I tried again and again to make 1513 sound right with everything else but with another microphone there is a different sound of my voice. I amplified the track and lowered the volume by 3 db.

https://librivox.org/uploads/kitty/worldstory_volume10_065_tappan_128kb.mp3
7:06 long track

Hopeforce1.

... one small correction to note:

> at 0:38: you say "editor's preface": this can get cut, you correctly said "the editor" at the end, this is fully enough. We just read it the way it is written there.
Thank you, Sonia, for the kind words and encouragement :D
