The full caption below the image reads as follows: “Now, mark this; because these are things which you may not have heard in any speech which has been made in the city of Edinburgh. (Laughter and cheers.) I had — if it be not arrogant to use such a phrase — to educate our party. It is a large party, and requires its attention to be called to questions of this kind with some pressure. I had to prepare the mind of Parliament and the country in this question of Reform.” — Mr. Disraeli’s Speech at the Edinburgh Banquet.”
