A Big Job Ahead

A Big Job Ahead


A bureau of press clippings in London has received the royal "command" to furnish twenty distinct sets of newspaper cuttings from every periodical in the world, so far as obtainable, referring to the death of Prince Albert Victor. The sets are to be pasted each in a separate album. The section directed to American clippings should make a very edifying collection, if the bureau is faithful in obeying the command. - New York Sun.

Note: I find this to be a very strange request indeed (pardon me, "Command"), and why would this be commanded 4 months after Prince Albert Victor's death? Why not straight away? I mean, he died of influenza on January 14, 1892. Hmmmm.....

Strange it must have seemed to the British royal family and something of a forecast of doom to find that there were a hundred thousand workingmen, thoroughly organized, who refused to send resolutions of condolence on the death of Prince Albert Victor, at the same time that the same workingmen passed resolutions expressive of the sincerest sorrow at the loss of Cardinal Manning. They knew who had been their friend.

Note: How pitiful! It never ceases to amaze me how certain individuals expect (Command) everyone to like them just because they wear a crown!
