My doctor asked whether anyone in my family suffers from mental illness.
I said: "No, we all seem to enjoy it."

Thanks! I do enjoy your voice. :)

2:43 - 2l 14s 6d - this is sixpence, not six dollars. :)

2:48 - Please say "end of footnote"

4:17-4:25 - please remove this footnote. It's uninteresting, IMHO.

6:06 - please say "end of footnote"

7:14 - 8s 9d a day - "nine pence" please. :)

7:17 - 11s 7d... 10s 9d... 13s 2d - please make these all "pence" (if you want to sound like a Brit, 2d would be "tuppence")

7:38 - please say "end of footnote."

10:20 - please say "end of footnote"

19:48 - stumble & repeat: "The intense selfishness...credible" repeated at 19:57

Section 16:

19:49 - "vary from 2_s_. 4_d_. to 4_s_. 3_d_. a week." - The d in English currency is "pence". (If you want to sound like a Brit, 3d is "thruppence" rather than "threepence".)

It's up to you if you want to fix this. Generally, pennies and pence are fairly equivalent.

Section 18: PL OK!

17:52 - "Sir Francis Crossley, Bart." - FYI, "Bart" here is "baronet." No need to change it unless you really, really want to. ;)
