The Homœopathic Congress [excerpt]

I feel it would be in accord with the feelings of His Majesty, and not utterly inappropriate—certainly I know of no better opportunity to take—to refer to the terrible loss which our American cousins have endured in the horrible murder of their elected head. President M’Kinley had won the respect not only of the people who chose him as their ruler, but of the sister nation of which we are a part. The members of the medical profession in the United States who are in sympathy with us form, as most of you know, no inconsiderable portion of the American population, so I feel it is not presumptuous on our part to offer our sympathy with them in the loss they have sustained and our horror and shrinking from the dastardly crime by which it has been brought about. (Hear, hear.) The death of this man, in an eminent position, borne to his grave to-day, as no doubt you know, brings us—as did the recent sympathy shown by America with us in our loss—closer together with our sister nation. (Hear, hear.) Ladies and gentlemen,—I offer you the toast of the King, the Queen, and the members of the Royal Family. (Applause.)
     The toast was received with hearty loyalty.
