MR. GLADSTONE OPENING A NEW HALL AT PORT SUNLIGHT, CHESHIRE: "This hall means relief from toil in the first place, though not exclusively. Labour is the lot of man; labour is the burden of man; labour is, and, I fear, long may be in many of its branches, a severe and heavy burden, although I rejoice to think that it is lighter far than it was during the early years of my life for nearly the whole, if not the whole, of the labouring population."
