Mr Pickwick speaks

What Mr Pickwick had to say on this occasion, together with the debate about it, is written in the Transactions of the Pickwick Club. Both Mr Pickwick's speech and the debate afterward are very similar to those of other celebrated associations; and, because it is always interesting to see similarities in the actions of great men, we have copied the entry from the club's records to these pages.
