A Bundle of Letters from over the Sea, by Louise B. Robinson
In presenting my little book to the public, I feel that I should apologize for so doing, instead of introducing it; for at the time my letters were written I had no idea of publishing them. Since my return, however, several friends who had read them have assured me that they greatly enjoyed them, and felt that others would do so, also, had they the opportunity. The letters have, at least, the merit of being fresh and honest impressions of the places described, as they were written on the spots. Remembering how eagerly I have always read letters of travel, I sincerely hope that mine may prove a source of pleasure to some—to those who have been over the same ground, and to many who have the pleasure in anticipation. I am aware that the route I describe is a well-worn thoroughfare, but every eye has its own perspective, and different views of the same pictures assist the sight-seer in comprehending the whole. Therefore, I here beg the charity of all into whose hands this little book may fall.

L. B. R.
Hotel Oxford, Boston,
December 20, 1889. (Summary from the Preface)

Thank you greatly!

MW has been filled in, we should be ready for readers wanted :D

Couple notes:

I changed the intro to "Letter" rather than section or chapter.

I added another section forgetting it was 15 letters (and two longer sections broken up) :roll:

Anyway, we are good to go methinks.

Thanks,
Elijah

Hi Elijah,

Here’s is the first letter from Letters from the Sea. :-)

https://librivox.org/uploads/aradlaw/lettersfromthesea_01_robinson_128kb.mp3
Time: 12:02

By the way, I noticed that MC was not yet listed here, only the mysterious “xxxx”... but scrolled back and saw that “aradlaw” will be MC-ing so I directed the file to them! Hope I did that right?

Also, I noted that the example in brackets of the file name has a wee boo-boo—it’s missing the “m” … I did correct that in my uploaded file. Again, hopefully that was the right thing to do.

Have a great day!

Val
