'My Lord Mayor, ladies and gentlemen, it is a great pleasure to pay this, my first visit to Manchester and to feel the warmth of the welcome with which the citizens of your great city have so kindly received me. I have been very much impressed to read and hear about the notable part, which the Free Trade Hall has played in the life of Manchester. ... I think you have done me a great honour in asking me to commemorate with this stone with the rebuilding of this new hall, which I am sure, is destined to be as vital a centre of civic life as its predecessor. This stone will rest on ground long hallowed by tradition. On these foundations will rise from the ruins a new hall which will be a monument to the glories of the past. More than that, it will be an act of faith in the future and one in which I am delighted to be able to join with my most sincere good wishes. MS Princess presented with a trowel and mallet.
