Google Introduces Nexus 7 Tablet in the UK With Churchill’s Words
Churchill himself worked to overcome a speech impediment. During the 1920s he sought help from Cortland MacMahon, Instructor For Speech Defects and Breathing Exercises at St. Bartholowmew’s Hospital. Churchill believed that he benefitted from MacMahon’s treatment “to the extent almost of a perfect cure” and felt it his “duty to spread the good tidings to others who may be similarly helped.” One of those whom Churchill referred to MacMahon was the Prince of Wales, the future King Edward VIII. In 1928 MacMahon wrote Churchill that he had commenced treatment with the prince and thanked him for the reference. All this took place at the same time the Duke of York, the future King George VI, was being treated by the Australian speech therapist Lionel Logue, a story now made famous by the Oscar-winning film The King’s Speech.
