[00:13.38]The secretary told me that Mr. Harmsworth would see me.
[00:18.78]I felt very nervous when I went into his office.
[00:23.86]He did not look up from his desk when I entered.
[00:28.34]After I had sat down,
[00:30.73]he said that business was very bad.
[00:34.60]He told me that the firm could not afford to pay such large salaries.
[00:41.02]Twenty people had already left.
[00:44.56]I knew that my turn had come.
[00:48.09]'Mr. Harmsworth,' I said in a weak voice.
[00:52.80]'Don't interrupt,' he said.
[00:55.64]Then he smiled and told me I would receive an extra thousand pounds a year!
