Text heard on Sample:
I am nervous. I am not ill
but I am nervous.
If you would know what is the matter with me
I am nervous.
But I love you both very well;
if you would tell me the truth.
I love Doctor Heberden best; for he has not told me a lie.
Sir George has told me a lie: a white lie, he says
but I hate a white lie!
If you tell me a lie,
let it be a black lie!

Comfort ye, comfort ye, my people...

Randolph Stow
