Morna Lee, and Other Poems, by Mary Hannay Foott (1846 - 1918).

Mary Hannay Foott (pen name, La Quenouille) was a Scottish-born Australian poet and editor. She is well remembered for a bush-ballad poem, "Where the Pelican Builds". ( Wikipedia)
    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/mornaleeotherpoe00foot/page/n3/mode/2up
    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: standard

        "Morna Lee, and Other Poems, by Mary Hannay Foott. Section [Number + Title]"


        All Other Sections (For Sections 2 through 40), use shorter intro: "[Poem title] by Mary Hannay Foott, read for LibriVox.org" by [your name] or some variation on that, adding date, location, your personal URL, etc., if you wish."

      • At the end of the section, say:
        "End of poem. This recording is in the public domain."
      • If you wish, say:
        "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"

      There should be ~5 seconds silence at the end of the recording.

    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 latest version of Audacity is recommended for noise-cleaning. See this LibriVox wiki page for a complete guide.

Section 18 - Dickens

https://librivox.org/uploads/knotyouraveragejo/mornalee_18_foott_128kb.mp3
1.52

Judging by the date 1870 this must have been written soon after Dickens death :(

Can I add section 17?

It does not appear you have a DPL. I would be happy to do this project if you would like.

Hmm. Got carried away and recorded Section 8 as well. Guess I was anxious for some rain after the drought. I'll go ahead and upload it and hope you can use it.
