Thanks, Sonia! Luckily my neighbours were out so I could give it a proper belly laugh!

McChesney act 2 revised

I think it got distorted by my attempts to do an American accent. Try this one :oops:

One Miss Mary Grayson for you hearing pleasure (what a conniving little... Well, I'm sure you know!)
wohooo, Annie, this was a great performance. I love the character portrayal you did for Mary, first so calculating, but then having real feelings, and still very business-like. Rodney doesn't really deserve her :lol: Well done. Really enjoyed the show and I'm looking forward to hearing all this assembled.

However, there are a few missed lines and some smaller errors to correct, before I can mark them ok:

Act 1:
> voice credit: actually you didn't have to include "Rodney's girlfriend" here as this was not mentioned in the original script, so this part can get cut
> at 0:40: (p. 6) "Tell her that Mr Martin Senior can see no one." – you forgot to say "senior"
> at about 16:10: (p. 23) please insert: "What idea ? What book ?"
> at about 18:04: (p. 25) please insert: "I'll be back in a few minutes."

Act 2:
> at 0:34: (p. 54) "Quite right – in business hours, only business" – you say twice "business hours", but she meant here, "during business hours, we will only focus on business", so the second "hours" needs to be cut and maybe you want to emphasize it differently, I leave that choice to you
> at 4:50: (p. 69) "that unless they get some money at once" – you say "we get"
> at 9:13: (p. 81) "if he could keep on a little longer" – you say "if you could keep"
> at 13:01: (p. 86) "So have I" – you say "so do I", this may be optional, but since Peale first says "I have got one", usually you would reply with the same auxiliary verb "have"

Act 3:
> at about 1:55: (p. 91) please insert: "Tell him about it, Rodney."
> at about 3:22: (p. 103) please insert: "Where is father ?"
> at about 4:50: (p. 106) please insert: "Have a chair ?"

thanks

Sonia

Hello and welcome to Librivox! Great to have you aboard.

For the time being, I can reserve you this voice-part for one month. This will give you the time to complete your one-minute-test, which we recommend, before you start recording anything in a project.

The test's purpose is to check that your technical settings are all up to LV standard. You can read all about it here: https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=1-Minute_Test

Please post the test in the Listeners Wanted forum: viewforum.php?f=21 and someone will check it and give you feedback or advice if needed.

As soon as the test is ok'ed, please post the results back here, and then I can assign you the voice-part officially.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. :)

Good luck with the test !

Cyrus Martin recorded. Must edit to "clean 'im up"

(I should have known. I see that Sonia played the Countess. Trying to best me yet again....)

Thanks, Todd
