Mister Ron's Basement No. 1948

We have discovered some odd, almost forgotten Stephen Leacock pieces this week!

What would it be like if speakers at public events spoke nothing but the truth? Fid out in Leacock’s 1914 story, ‘Truthful Oratory - What Our Speakers Ought to Say.’

Time: approx eight and a half minutes

The Mister Ron's Basement Catalog can be found at:
