Identifier: LC76-08

Summary Note

The King was the son of his predecessor, whom Kenneth had previously known, if slightly. The two men spoke in Thai, using the common language. The King gave a dinner, and his wife came. He had told Kenneth that she never came to dinners for foreign diplomats because she didn't speak any language but Lao. But when she learned that Kenneth spoke Thai, she decided to come. So the King, his wife, Kenneth, and a few of the courtiers had an enjoyable evening together. (Length 3:13)
