No line that can be drawn between the past and the present because the past isn't just a thing that ends. The past and the present inextricably intertwined. Past relationships between countries in the Empire that never required anything in writing. What we think of each other. What the speaker heard about Canada during his travels in the United States. The function of the historian in public life. Lessons to be learned from history. The outrages in Germany against the Jews. The Jewish citizens of the British Empire watching the governments and churches of the Empire and the decent public men of the Empire to see how deeply and genuinely resentment against these outrages is felt and expressed. The lack of difficulty in reconciling loyalty to one's faith with loyalty to the British Empire.
