Here's Mrs. Porcher!
https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/hobbyhorse_mrsporcher_2_128kb.mp3
oh Mrs Porcher is GREAT :clap: so prim and bigotted and very very nasty. I think Bishop Proudie's wife of Barchester Towers stood role model here :lol: excellently done. Loved it ! She should have had a bigger role.

I found two small things to edit though:

> at 1:22: (p. 86) "Dr. Porcher has not slept uninterruptedly through" - you stumbled once here in the beginnning of the word, but "inter" can be cut out quite easily

> at 2:30: (p. 87) "the time had arrived for you to leave London" - you say "to London" which is the opposite

thanks
