This chapter presents the author's comments on Mark Richard's interpretation of his views about the state of relief. It argues that the account of the truth conditions of utterances expressing relief that some painful episode lies in one's past carries over to the thought itself, that one is relieved. The state of being relieved involves the state itself as a constituent of the object of relief, and demands also the location of that state as present; that is, as coincident with one's own self-consciousness of the state.

Keywords:   relief, utterances, thought, semantics
