Title:
Landon Chronicles (1945): Kenneth on Subsequent Problems with the Thai Minister's Brother (hour 68, clip 3)
Date:
1945
Description:
The military attaché, Karp Kunjara, later told Kenneth that he had no further problems. As a consequence of this incident, Pramoj's brother is just a relentless enemy of Kenneth. He even wrote about Kenneth in his newspaper, running him down, saying that Kenneth spoke and understood Thai so badly that he could not communicate. Kenneth was in the country at the time, speaking to the Rotary Club that very week. He referred to the article, speaking in Thai, and said, "You'll all be delighted to know that I cannot speak Thai and that you cannot understand me." They just roared with laughter. He proceeded to deliver a twenty-minute speech in Thai "just for the hell of it." (Length 1:40)
