Harcourt’s Round Table

.

A private conference in the house of Sir William Harcourt, January 14, 1887, with the view of reuniting, if possible, the Liberal party, broken up by Mr. Gladstone’s Irish policy.

The phrase “Round Table” is American, meaning what the French call a cercle, or club meetings held at each other’s houses.
