In his hand is a briefcase containing Goldstein’s book, which he Hasn’t had a chance to open since receiving it six days ago, on the sixth day Of Hate Week.

Winston was at a Demonstration that night, listening to a grotesque-looking Inner Party orator Deliver a furious anti-Eurasian speech that stirred the crowd of thousands to a Wild, hate-filled roar. Then a messenger handed the orator a slip of paper. He Continued his speech without a pause, but now he condemned Eastasia instead of Eurasia. The crowd, accepting this immediately, assumed the anti-Eurasian Posters and banners everywhere were the result of acts of sabotage by agents of Goldstein and ripped them from the walls. Meanwhile the orator continued his Speech. After a few minutes, the crowd returned to yelling in rage, only this Time at a different target. Winston is impressed, looking back, by how the Orator shifted so seamlessly into directing his speech at Eastasia. At the Time, however, he was distracted by a man handing him a briefcase, just as O’Brien had promised, and by the vast amount of work he knew he would have to Begin.
