Hi

From WR "draw" has several meanings and I can't choose which one goes with this context:

Now it is understood that he has composed an original speech of congratulation and benediction, and this is one of the events of the day. Even the boys, who are romping about the room, draw near and listen, and some of the women sob and wipe their aprons in their eyes.

Thanks
