Honestly, what are those sample texts? So many damn weird words and spelling errors, ARGH!
Especially the punctuation sucks ass in mine. Still, at least it says 64...

You made 1 mistake, your mistake is shown in bold text:

In a little place called Le Monastier, in a pleasant highland valley fifteen miles from Le Puy, I spent about a month of fine days. Monastier is a notable for the making of lace, for drunkenness, for freedom of language, and for unparalleled political dissension. There are adhereents of each of the four French parties, Legitimists, Orleanists, Imperialists, and Republicans, in this little mountain-town; and they all hate, loathe, decry, and calumniate each other. Except for business purposes, or to give each other the lie in a tavern brawl, they have laid aside even the civility of speech. 'Tis a mere mountain Poland.

...bleh :P

I am a relatively slow, but fairly accurate typist. Mis-read the name of the farmer and added a "." reflexively.

Funnily enough, I can touchtype with my left hand, but not with my right.

(82WPM, 2 mistakes. I made more typos, but everytime I catch myself hitting the wrong button, I reflexively backspace and correct it. Can't not do that.)
