I occupied the three days' interval in composing a speech which I thought I might be called upon to deliver to a crowded executive of stern-faced citizens, about to unfurl that flag of British freedom for which 'Hampden died on the battlefield and Sidney on the scaffold'.

My Early Life, by Winston S. Churchill

What's a crowded executive?

It's not crowded executive.

Churchill was preparing to make a speech to a bunch of high elite people of administrave status, whom he thought beforehand not to be positive towards him.
