dominions are now free and the people partners with this ancient kingdom I felt this morning that the whole empire was in very truth gathered within the walls of Westminster abbey I rejoice that I can now speak to you all wherever you may be greeting old friends in distant lands and as I hope new friends in those parts where it has not yet been my good fortune to go In this personal way the queen and I wish health and happiness to you all and we do not forget at this time of celebration those who are living under the shadow of sickness Their example at courage and good citizenship is always before us And to them I would send a special message of sympathy and good cheer I cannot find words with which to thank you for your love and loyalty to the queen and myself Your good will in the streets today your countless messages from overseas and from every quarter of these islands has filled our hearts to overflowing I will only say this that if in the coming years I can show my gratitude in service to you that is the way above all others that I should choose To many millions the crown is a symbol of Unity by the grace of God and by the will of the free peoples of the British common wealth I have assumed that crown In me as your king is vested for a time the duty of maintaining its honor and integrity This is in deed a grave and constant responsibility but it gave me confi dence to see your representatives along the abbey and to know that you too were enabled to join in that infinitely beautiful cere monial Its outward forms come down from distant times but its inner meaning and message are always new For tile highest of distinction is the service for others and to the ministry of kingship I have with your sharing dedicated myself with the queen at my side in words of the deepest solemnity We will God helping us faithfully discharge our trust Those of you who are children now will I hope retain the memories of the day of carefree happiness such as I still have of the day of my grandfathers coronation In the years yet to come some of you will travel from one part of the commonwealth to another and movingthus within the family circlewill meet many whose thoughts are colored by the samememories whosehearts unite in devotion to our commonheritage You will learn I hope how much our free assoeiatiorimeans to ourirrefidsHipwith each other and all other nations ontheearth1 can help the cause of peace and progress The queen and I will always keep in our hearts the inspira tion of this day May we ever beworthy of the good will which I am proud to think
