Privilege of London.
London still retains its picturesque
ancient rights and privileges, and as
an instance-it may be mentioned that
whenever the ruling monarch pays a
formal or state visit to the city It is
customary for the lord mayor and slier-i
Iff 3 to meet the sovereign at the bound-
ary of the ancient city, where he will
enter. A sword Is extended to the king
(implying that permission to enter is
given), who touches It and returns it
to the mayor. By ancient right, upon
the decease of the sovereign and until
the proclamation of the new monarch,
the lord mayor Is nominal bead pf the
state, with full authority and powers.
