Re: Text linked not PD [SOLO] The Private Journal of a Journey from Boston to New York by Sarah Kemble Knight (1704)

The 1865 edition referenced in the introduction is available at https://catalog.hathitrust.org/Record/001261706. Since it's a scan of the actual volume, it might be more readable than the 1825, which is from microform.

Cheers,

Winston

And from what I have seen of paid readers with an engineer, it doesn't finish up much quicker
That's because the engineers are getting paid by the hour. :D

Ravenshaw Series by Wallace M. Macfarlane (1918-1999)
http://www.isfdb.org/cgi-bin/pe.cgi?24016

LibriVox has one Macfarlane SF short in the catalog, but it's not a Ravenshaw story.

No rush, Colleen. I'm taking my time cranking them out but will probably have the last two stories uploaded in the next couple of months. Regarding Chandler and Hammett, I thought you might be interested in this photo of what may have been the only time they met: https://thrillingdetective.wordpress...

Re: OPEN Short Poetry Collection 206 - rap

Just one PL note for "To Jake", Winston, as it is missing the "End of poem" phrase. Corrected file uploaded. New duration is 1:05. Congratulations on your anniversary at the helm of SPC, Rapunzelina. I missed that announcement earlier. Poetry does seem to be getting more popular on your watch. :clap:
