Thanks, Rob! :) These look interesting!

Only a Wilde aficionado would tackle a blurry scan like that from New York World! Craig, if this poses difficulty in PLing, I'll help out.

Thank you, Chad! :) Craig will PL both your revised Chesterton and your 2nd contribution to Vol. 072 on Thomas Andrews, both of which I have entered in the Magic Window. Please, please keep a close eye on the thread and follow up with these recordings as they go through the proof listening process. They are the last two selections --19 and 20-- in Vol. 072, and I will be strictly following the "2 weeks to complete edits" rule for that reason.

Craig, Here is the link to the source for Chesterton, from Chad's original post: www.gkc.org.uk/gkc/books/child_psychology.html

Thanks for two interesting pieces Chad :thumbs:
Child Psychology and Nonsence is PLOK
Thomas Andrews, Naval Architect of the Titanic was well read. A few errors noted. Best to correct them from end to start.

6:05 and effective too was the desire he showed always to get the best possible out of every worker. You said the affective

21:25 that Mr. Childers met Andrews and noted in him those qualities of zest, vigour, power and simplicity, which impressed him deeply. Yet Andrews then was no whit more enthusiastic, we feel sure, than on any other day of the great ship’s fashioning, from the time of her conception slowly down through the long process of calculating, planning, designing, building, fitting, until at last she sailed proudly away to the applause of half the world. Whatever share others had in her, his at least cannot be gainsaid. As Lord Pirrie’s Assistant he had done his part by way of shaping into tangible form the projects of her owners. As Chief Designer and Naval Architect he planned her complete. As Managing Director he saw her grow up, frame by frame, plate by plate, day after day throughout more than two years; watched her grow as a father watches his child grow, assiduously, minutely, and with much the same feelings of parental pride and affection.

Reread this whole part. you missed a few sentences :D

22:30 Her compasses being adjusted, the ship steamed towards the Isle of Man - you said encompasses

26:38 On the 9th he wrote: “The Titanic is now about complete and will I think do the old Firm credit to-morrow when we sail.” Some pauses

Being #1 is always nice... Look at it this way, Tricia, I'll give you the first slot in Vol. 073, and I trust you to get the volume off to a rousing start. :wink: Vol. 073 will be up soon.
