The King receives a new book ...

The King is wearing his new swivel gun hat today, the members of the court had politely commented how marvellous it was.

After receiving ambassadors in the throne room he had returned to the library to have a look at a book he had been waiting for which had just been delivered...
 He looked at the book with anticipation ...
Just as he was about to open it, Count Hermann entered the library. The King turned quickly (the barrel of his hat gun swivelled jauntily to the rear).
 King: Hello Count, what do you want ?
Count: We're due for a meeting with the Field Marshall to discuss the Villa Rondiso incident
King: Ah of course, I must have a look at this book for a while.

The King and the Count perused the book and agreed it was excellent, beautifully illustrated with many plates and line drawings.  After a short while they left the library to go and see the Field Marshall.


  1. Wonderful! And enjoy the new book too.

    Best Regards,


  2. Thanks for the 'heads up' on the book...
