Gallagher includes post script describing their platform as a "soapbox" and that each of their meetings will have a subject and "definite point" that will be advertised.
Gallagher notes that the weather hindered their advertising and there was less discussion following his lecture. Writes "I believe one individual made a slight remark if I was a foreigner (owing to my accent) [Gallagher was originally from Fermanagh] and he was told to keep quiet by those around him or he would get his head cracked".
