By the Chancellor.

Most strenuous of men, most distinguished of citizens to-day playing a part on the stage of the world, you who have twice administered with purity the first Magistracy of the Great Republic (and may perhaps administer it a third time), peer of the most august Kings, queller of men, destroyer of monsters wherever found, yet the most human of mankind, deeming nothing indifferent to you, not even the blackest of the black; I, by my authority and that of the whole University, admit you to the Degree of Doctor of Civil Law, honoris causa.

Go, Bedels, conduct the Honorable Doctor to the Lectern!

Here follows the Chancellor’s welcome, and the Romanes Lecture.

And now, my dear Vice-Chancellor—­for it is time—­be good enough to dissolve the Convocation!

* * * * *

The Vice-Chancellor.

Exalted Lord Chancellor, at your bidding we dissolve the Convocation.
