Sure, that works. On reviewing this I'm not sure why I put it on the

- Page numbers can be removed in one go with a regex.
- Normally we'd put the "introduction" as front matter but in this case
it looks like it's actually body matter framing the narrative, so leave
it after the half title page.
- You'll have to run `se british2american` during production so
carefully review the direction of quotation marks when proofreading.
- There are endnotes, so `se shift-endnotes` and `se renumber-endnotes`
may be helpful to you during production.

Please email often if you have any questions at all. Our standards are

that I can mark you as having started.
Have fun! :)
