The Rover Vol. 01 No. 04, edited by Seba Smith (1792-1868) and Lawrence Labree

This project is now complete! All audio files can now be found on the catalog page for this project https://librivox.org/rover-01-04-by-various/
"The Rover: A weekly magazine of tales, poetry and engravings, original and selected" was a magazine started in 1843 by Seba Smith and Lawrence Labree. The editors aimed at a high quality standard in their selection of short stories and poetry. Every half-year, the 26 weekly issues were also published under a bound compilation. This is the fourth issue, containing 7 stories and a poem. ( Sonia)
    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/rover02labrgoog/page/n69/mode/2up
      Two pages for the stories "Chess Play" and "Zoe" are missing in this link, so please refer to this link for pages 62 and 63 instead: https://archive.org/details/rover01labrgoog/page/n100/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


      Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

    8. AFTER recording
      Need noise-cleaning?

I love to read, AND my employer matches my volunteer hours with a donation to the Internet Archive, flagged to benefit Librivox.org. How cool is that?

Having just finished The Necromancer, lord I hope not! I believe this one includes a talking fish, which will hopefully be as pleasant as it sounds.

Section 8 - The Maid of Malahide

https://librivox.org/uploads/kitty/rover0104_8_smith_128kb.mp3
3.06

No mention of an author who was apparently "Mrs Campbell"
This is based on a traditional Irish legend, the subject of several folk songs, about a woman who was "a maid, a wife and a widow" all in the same day. "She awoke a maid and went to bed a widow" :(

how tragic :( yes I can easily hear this being sung on festivals in old castles. Nice narration, Alan, thank you.

Only one detail to add is the end disclaimer for the whole project, since yours is the final section: "End of The Rover Volume 1 Number 4, edited by Seba Smith and Lawrence Labree."

The rest is perfect
