An illustration of the beneficent effects of British rule. Changes evident from 1882 when the speaker went to Egypt when the country was in open rebellion, and his visit just before the war when he went out to inspect Egypt. The warmth and friendly feeling towards the Empire shown to the speaker as he travelled through America. The first-rate order to be found in Belfast, and how things are working in Ulster. The not so pleasant picture in the south. Impressions of Toronto. Two events in connection with the service of the Canadian Corps which made them immortal. Remembering the capture of Vimy Ridge and the last hundred days of the war. The many troubles before this Empire as a result of the forces of disaster, particularly Bolshevism and Socialism. The continuing importance that the loyal sons of the Empire stand shoulder to shoulder now in peace-time as they did in war-time. Canada's glorious example in this respect.
