A joint meeting of The Empire Club of Canada and The Canadian Club in Honour of His Excellency, The Right Honourable Earl of Bessborough:
The experience of the speaker and his family in Canada. Gaining an up-to-date understanding of the British Empire. The British Empire not as a rigid political abstraction but as a living organism, readily adaptable to ever changing needs of an evolutionary world, evident in the relations between the Mother country and the great Dominions overseas. Belief in the British Empire grounded on a true conception of what the Empire is today. The dynamic living strength of the British Empire. Comments on the evolution of the monarchy. Evolutionary changes in the outward form of the British Empire with a corresponding change in the responsibilities and duties of its members. Canada's high sense of duty. The need for Canada to continue to foster her own cultural development. A brief word on drama, and Canadian drama.
