No such thing as indifferent speaking. The chief thing to remember in public speaking. Having something to say; knowing how to say it. The four main parts of good speaking: position, breathing, vocalization, articulation. The importance of standing steady. How to breathe, with demonstration. The problem of improper articulation, with examples of how to articulate some of the consonants. Good speaking largely a matter of good physique. The spirit necessary for good speaking. The power to sway an audience.
