John McNab, by John Buchan (1875 - 1940)
Sir Edward Leithen and his friends Lord Lamancha, Palliser-Yeates, and Archie Roylance are bored of life. After Leithen's doctor recommends a hearty adventure, they set out to Scotland for a season of shooting--on other people's grounds. Determined that being a gentleman poacher who gives notice to the one being poached from will be the adventure they need, Leithen and company embark on an adventure that has a bit more at stake than they realized. (Summary by AdeledePignerolles)

We can't accept the source - the page says clearly
Project Gutenberg of Australia eBooks are created from printed editions
which are in the public domain in Australia, unless a copyright notice
is included. We do NOT keep any eBooks in compliance with a particular
paper edition.
You need to find a source which is acceptable sadly. Australian rules are based on death date of the author not date of publication.

How about this Archive scan - says "reprinted 1925", so this source is Public Domain in the US:

Sorry about that! I thought it would work since the publication date was fine. The archive version works!

Hi Adele, Since the source text issue has been settled, I will MC. Your Magic Window is in place and I replaced the source text link. Did you want to DPL this project yourself?
Best,
Christine

Hello! Here is section 10 (29:43). I did my best with the Scottish dialogue, but am always happy to adjust anything as needed.
