A LACONIC SPEECH. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 3 April 1914
A LACONIC SPEECH, -+-~---- At an earlier period of English rural life there was perhaps more of an equality between the landowners and their labourers than exists to day. A recently-published book, en titled "Coke of Norfolk and His Friends," gives a lively picture of society in his day. Among the homely occasions described is the dinner given at the end of the sheep-shearing season at Holkham. The shortest speech on record at the clippings is said to be the following. A man was observed to make ef forts to rise to his feet, but each time he was hustled baek by his companions, who, probably on the principle that a prophet is with out honour in his own country, re commended him to hold his tongue. "Sit down, will 'ee !" they reiter ated, firmly, when suddenly Coke no ticed the little commotion, and iu terfered. "I see," he said, "that good fel low has something to say to us. Pray let him speak." The man, thus encouraged, rose triumphantly to his feet, and ham mered on the table. Prof...
