Job Description

We have a collection of 33 letters from 1903 - 1931 from a Norwegian immigrant that we would like to have an audio recording for personal historical logging (a member of the family is blind). There is no plan for any distribution.

The 33 letters vary in length, the majority are fairly short (shorter ones being about 100-200 words per letter). There are a few longer letters but they're never more than 1 page in length (roughly 600 words).

In total, I estimate they will be around a total of 6000-6,600 words.

All the letters are typed out so they are very easy to read. There is no file version and they will be manually scanned, hence the little bit of uncertainty regarding word count.

You will also need to read the title page and pages denoting the beginning of each new section of letters. (There are 6 sections - for example: Part 1: Adjusting to a New Land. Letters 1 to 4, 1903 -1904)
