His speech was commenced in a fervent and eloquent strain, and after proceeding, perhaps, for half an hour, he began to fail, and in a short while became unable to enunciate more than short sentences connectedly.
In this condition he sat down, and the audience dispersed while he seemed oblivious as to what was passing.
He was assisted from the Judges
