The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 48


page break


One, and not the least useful, among the duties of a Central Liberal Association is that of affording to the general public and to its own members an opportunity of perusing in a convenient form the principal political speeches of eminent Liberal statesmen. No fitter occasion could have been found for the exercise of this duty than Mr. Gladstone's recent visit to Midlothian, and indeed to Scotland, while no series of speeches could in their character more forcibly have called for publication and general distribution Whether regard be had to the personal gifts and qualities of the right honourable gentleman himself, or to the spontaneous enthusiasm with which he was everywhere received, or to the wide range and engrossing interest of his addresses, we think all will agree in the benefit to be derived from their issue in a pamphlet shape.
