“Thank you Premier, and Mr Mayor for your warm welcome. It’s an honour for me to be here with you in Quebec today. For me, as a soldier and an airman, it is a privilege to have inspected a great regiment like the Royal 22nd. Your reputation is as strong as it is legendary. This place has such beauty and history. You, Quebecois and Quebecoise, have such vitality and vigour.

A Review

William Gladstone, Britain’s Prime Minister under Queen Victoria, began a diary at age eighteen and ended it at age thirty. The entries are highly religious in content and, in fact, served the purpose of clearing his mind on spiritual and religious matters as they pertained to the individual and the nation.
