It is easy to recall after the lapse of thirty-six years the extraordinary impression which that speech made upon the great audience which heard it a crowded House of Commons and the public galleries packed to the roof.
Now it suddenly dismayed her, a terror close at hand. Here on this crowded balcony joyous with lights and gay voices and invaded by all the subtle invitations of a summer night above the water!
