It is related Of the King Of Siam that when the first Brit ish minister appeared at his court he was requested by the King to describe the manners, customs and climate of England. The King listened attentively to the minister's description Of Eng land until he began to Speak of the formation of ice and the freezing over Of rivers. This appeared so unreasonable and impossible to the King, that he interrupted the minister and told him that, since he had been guilty Of telling one such false hood, he believed his entire description to be false. The King may have used stronger and more emphatic language than this if so, he is under obligations to me for expressing his thought in diplomatic language.
