Knowing His Place

AT a grand review by George III. of the Portsmouth fleet in 1789, there

was a boy who mounted the shrouds with so much agility as to surprise

every spectator. The king particularly noticed it, and said to Lord

Lothian, Lothian, I have heard much of your agility; let us see you run

up after that boy.--Sire, replied Lord Lothian, it is my duty to

follow your Majesty.
