Title:
Landon Chronicles (1927): Siam: John Eakin Gave a Speech for the King (hour 37, clip 3)
Date:
1927
Description:
John Eakin asked the king to give a speech in English, and he replied that he could do so if Eakin would give a  speech in the Siamese langugae. Eakin was just beginning his time in Siam, but he managed to have a speech written in perfect Siamese. At the banquet he read the speech upon the insistance of the king. The king and all the people were amazed. Then the king said a few words in English, to which Eakin replied "Mai paw" (not enough!), a phrase he wasn't supposed to say in front of the King.
