King Haakon shook my hand.
During the performance he laughed heartily at the antics of our clown
and clapped his friendly approval. Our animals too did their best, as
if they knew they were going to delight a king with their art an
occasion which today has become more rare in the world. Nevertheless that clumsy lout our African elephant Safari would insist on
squirting a trunkful of sand at the Royal Box. That certainly did not
please, though it was soon forgotten, for the team of ten of which he
was one caused real delight.
