A ROYAL PARTY.
Ono at Which tho Question of - Proce.
dence Was Not Raised.
Precedence, always a ticklish mat
ter, is doubly ticklish where an ori
ental nation is concerned. When
George IV. was regent there was a
terrible to-do at court because the
Persian ambassador claimed prece
denee over all the other ainbassa
dors. This not being allowed, he
refused to go to court at all. Tit
for tat, he was informed that he
would not be received at Carlton
House, neither would the ministers
receive his visits. Sackcloth and
ashes at the Persian embassy. Soon
afterward the prince regent met the
shah's representative at Lord Salis
bury's. "Ali, I hope you are bet
ter,' he said diplomatically. "Oh.
sir, I am very well," was the answer,
"but I am sorry that I offended
your royal highness by not going
to court." And he explained how
it had all come about.
"Now, sir," the ambassador went
on, "my sovereign, he tell mae to go
first, and your congress, about
which I know nothing, say I must
go last. Now, sir, this very bad for
me when I go back to Persia." And I
he pointed with dismal significance
to his head. "Well, my good friend,
never mind it now. It does not sig
nify," said the regent, with that
cheerfulness natural to a man who
has not a sovereign waiting to nip
off his head. "Oh, yes, sir," protest
ed the Persian, "but your royal
highness is still angry with ne, and
you have not invited me to your
party tomorrow night." The re
gent laughed ieartily, saying, "As
a matter of fact. I was only going
to have a few children to dance, but
if you would like to comae I shall be
glad to see you." And the wise man
of the east (lid go and wrote, v'astly
proud, to his sovereign that lie had
gone to the ail, the only amlbssa- a
