A description of the ceremony of "the order of the night" at London Tower. Some history of "our late beloved Sovereign King Edward VII," who ascended the throne of Great Britain with more prejudices against him that any other. The closed doors on every hand. Now entered into the affection of his own subjects and the citizens of the world, having secured the confidence of the peoples on "the seven seas" and every nation under the sun. The speaker's submission that "we stand in the face of something marvellously like a miracle." How this man, in nine short years, was able to open these lockfast places. A discussion of the man and the King: his tact, his courage, his intelligence, his good humour, the sheer truthfulness of King Edward. The discipline of the late King. Never forgetting King Edward.
