vf23-01 A flying arrow passed between us
vf23-02 I pulled, suddenly, with all my might
vf23-03 Here we allow our solicitors to look after our legal work
vf23-04 His previous wives had never lived long enough to bear him children
vf23-05 It was our river emerging like ourselves from the great swamp
vf23-06 Cameron looked at his hands with their long, sinewy fingers
vf23-07 We got few vegetables and fruits, and became fish eaters
vf23-08 We never made another migration
vf23-09 Nor was Elam Harnish an exception
vf23-10 A little treatment, massage, with some help from the doctor
vf23-11 The 29th very foggy
vf23-12 Dig in; you're sure good, was Daylight's answer
vf23-13 The apron string loomed near and he shied like an unbroken colt
vf23-14 He had been born with this endowment
vf23-15 And this was their sole conversation throughout the meal
vf23-16 Though the aurora still flamed, another day had begun
vf23-17 He did not believe in the burning of daylight for such a luxury
vf23-18 Again he had done the big thing
vf23-19 Daylight was tired, profoundly tired
vf23-20 The regret in his voice was provocative of a second burst of laughter
vf23-21 Instead, he arrived on the night of the second day
vf23-22 Their supply of grub was gone
vf23-23 Crickets began to chirp, and more geese and ducks flew overhead
vf23-24 Not till the twentieth of May did the river break
vf23-25 It was a gigantic inadequacy
vf23-26 Our Mr Howison will call upon you at your hotel
vf23-27 He had been so easy
vf23-28 Change chairs, Daylight commanded
vf23-29 I'd sooner have my chips back
vf23-30 They only had a little thirty thousand dollar fire
vf23-31 His partners had starved and died on the Stewart
vf23-32 As to how she dressed, he had no ideas at all
vf23-33 It does, was her audacious answer
vf23-34 Oh, it's just a novel, a love story
vf23-35 Whoever lived on the ranch did that
vf23-36 How old are you, mother
vf23-37 Here he got a fresh thrill
vf23-38 It was unobtrusive, yet it was there
vf23-39 Well, I'll be plumb gosh darned
vf23-40 These quick little joys of hers were sources of joy to him

Hi Robin,

Thanks again for the submissions. 

Just so you know, I won't be able to incorporate the audio for this submission into the VoxForge Speech Corpus for a little while ... I'm cleaning up the backend scripts after having changed the structure of the svn database.

Ken

Hi Ken,

 

That's okay, I noticed there are a lot of things going on... interesting side projects, the first data from librivox etcetera.  It's nice to see this project grow. I'll keep submitting to it and promoting it and am sure I'll see the results quite soon!

 

Thanks,

Robin
