Too Long; Didn't Read

ADDRESS DELIVERED SEPTEMBER 23, 1907 Lieutenant-Governor Ellyson, of Virginia, in introducing Mr. Clemens, said: “The people have come here to bring a tribute of affectionate recollection for the man who has contributed so much to the progress of the world and the happiness of mankind.” As Mr. Clemens came down to the platform the applause became louder and louder, until Mr. Clemens held out his hand for silence. It was a great triumph, and it was almost a minute after the applause ceased before Mr. Clemens could speak. He attempted it once, and when the audience noticed his emotion, it cheered again loudly.
