His t unily who are with him are all well and contented. It is not unnatural that should believe in imperiali all that it involves, since tbey been accustomed from the el ages to conquering: and annexing mankind and to ruling their sub jects afterw?rd with wisdom and kindness.

Whether he is al ready married or not is not of great consequence, for in Siam it is not necessary to draw the line at one wife.
