A joint meeting of The Empire Club of Canada and The Canadian Club.
Some introductory comments about the British climate and weather. A physical, geographical and topographical picture of the English landscape, in some detail. The speaker's thought that there may exist a fair analogy between the political history and condition of England today and its geology. The enclosure in England, described as "the most elementary form of man's interference with the face of the earth," with many examples. The trees of England. The calm and confident demeanour of the British country scene. Some words about the men who inhabit the countryside of Great Britain; about the economic situation they find themselves in, and some historical contributions made by Great Britain and her people.
