President Stapells asked Dr. Cody to propose the toast to the Empire.
The special fitness in proposing this toast this year. The name of Queen Victoria, inextricably linked up with great advance in the idea and practice of the Empire, and how that is so. The Empire's health, stature, and soul. Comparing the British Empire with Empires of the past. How the British Empire has not been made, but has grown. The stages of the overseas policy from the point of view of the heart of the Empire. The new Imperialism and what it stands for.
