My good friends, this is the second time in our history that there has come back from Germany to Downing Street peace with honour. I believe it is peace for our time. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts. And now I recommend you to go home and sleep quietly in your beds.Neville Chamberlain (1869-1940) British politician, Prime Minster (1937-1940)
Speech, Downing Street, London (30 Sep 1938)
