John Adams meets the King
Important protocol to remember in terms of our relationship with England.
Especially important as former "subjects of The Empire" - and in the midst of the present "troubles" in the Anglican Communion.
King George III: "I pray, Mr. Adams, that the United States will not suffer unduly from its want of a monarchy."
John Adams: "Yes, we will strive to answer those prayers, your Majesty."
I believe we have done well, Mitregate not withstanding.
