the best interests of his No Final Decision i It was understood there would I be no final decision until it was learned whether the attack would come up for parliamentary debate in London and what the outcome of such legislative discussions would be The text of the archbishops s p c c c h broadcast Sunday throughout the British empire by a radio network was received here Tuesday Edward appeared unable to rouse himself from a deep despondency which seemed to have aged him suddenly after the swift drama of his abdication to marry the woman of his choice The duke sat for an hour his head bent
