Are there any notes if he used gestures to enforce his

I am a little bit surprised that this man of words
(and world) was so non-loud in his manners. Well, this
was before his "political" career in Amiens, but
shouldn't he be aware of how to run a public speech in
his situation? I guess he was aware, but he was
without the strenght to speak loud in this crowded
room. Or was he ill when he went on his tour to the
Low Countries?

Are there any notes about his performance as a speaker
when he had other speeches in public?
