Anne, I've just noticed in looking at a completed collection that there is a separate column for the author there. Can I assume that this one will be the same way, so I can remove the author name from each section name?

Edit: Also, I've just rearranged the sections according to how they'll need to be organized for Archive. Would you like to double check that I did it correctly?

Lomond, I hope that my rearranging of the MW doesn't throw you off too much. :)

Sorry - every time I've come back to answer something has interfered
Yes - the order is right at the moment, and you don't need the author's names in the section title when it's a designated collection.

I've uploaded my role in the play. I'll go ahead and mark it PL ok. I'm pretty confident in it, and since I'm doing the editing anyway, I'll be able to quickly fix anything that might need it if I'm wrong. :)

Thanks, Garth, I've got that in the MW for you. What a great book! I may have to read one from it myself. :D

Here's Ola, the sweetest little street waif you ever did hear! :D

https://librivox.org/uploads/annise/csw18_ola_ola_128kb.mp3

The first time she sang, I included the first verse and the refrain, and the second time just the refrain (they are two different recordings, she wanted it to be realistic... :lol: ), but I thought the refrain would be enough to move Mother. It's about time Jasmin learned this song -- that's a song from my childhood. :thumbs:

Thank you, Betty. These are in the MW.

Anne, I didn't see a publication year in this scan, but Hathi says it's PD. We trust them on that, right?

Wonderful job! :clap: Brava, Jasmin!

I will ask for one addition, please, and that is verse two of the song. I'd prefer the verse and refrain, not just the refrain:
Jesus loves me, He who died,
Heaven's gate to open wide.
He will wash away my sin,
Let His little child come in.

(refrain)
I won't insist on it if you aren't able to get to it in time, since the script doesn't specify which parts of the song should be included. But I particularly like this verse for the play because of the last line, "Let His little child come in," which is what Mrs. Good does for Ola. :)

(You can submit it in a separate file if you like.)

Great, thanks for telling me! I'm sure it's fine, but just wanted someone to double check me, since this is my first time BC'ing this kind of collection.
