THE ROMANCE OF INDIA." I A Notable Lecture. t Mr Herbert Garrison In Bromyard. I [" REI'PHTER SPECIAL] I Words fail of warmth and expression, when the geographer, the historian, and the naturalist attempt to describe the glory, the charm and the greatness of the vast mosaic which figures on the map as India. The land is beyond the comprehension of a solitary human mind, re- inforced though it may be with the liveliest imagination and the highest of standards. A vision, however, of this fairest jewel in the British Crown' a large audience had last nightâ a vision of unforgetable brilliance which set one speculating and meditating upon what the reality must be. It was like a passing pageant whose parts were pointed out by a lecturer of high eloquence and rare knowledge. Mr W H Garrison, F.R.G.S., the well known Lecturer and Special Commissioner of the Royal Colonial Institute, painted a wonderful picture of the Empire of the East. It is no exaggeration to say that the audience was fascinated. That it undoubtedly was fascinated and thrilled. As a lecturer Mr Garrison approximates as near to the ideal as possible. He is both a traveller and orator and many of his word picures on Monday evening last were not less remarkable than the slides thrown on the screen. He spoke of India's heterogeneous mass of humanity, its religions, colours, traditions, customs and languages, and declared that the land was kept free from massacre, pillage, and desolation by British Rule, whose rule he said was admired by every nation in the world. He gave a description of the Himalayan Mountainsâthe backbone of A4 and the roof of the world- and of the Kyber Pass through which all invasions of India, excepting that of the British, had been effected Calcutta, the second city of the British Empire; Bombay, the beautiful Madras, Madura, Hyderabad, Lucknow, Cawnpore, Delhi, Benares, the Mecca and Jerusalem of the Hindoos Agra and the Tag Mahal, Lahore, Amritsar, Darjeeling and Simla were included in Mr Garrison's wonderful narration of 'The Romance of India. He spoke for exactly two hours without a note or a pause and at the close of it he left his audience enriched with a beautiful experience and a treasury of noble memories. The lecture was given under the auspices of the Royal Colonial Institute. Mr J H Lutley, J.P., officiated as Chairman. The proceeds will be given to the Bromyard Cottage Hospital.
