Siam: Kenneth Inspired the Buddhist Priests


Margaret reads about a letter concerning Kenneth and the inspiration he had given to the Buddhist priests. The Lord Lieutenant had studied him in detail and wanted the Buddhist priests to learn from Kenneth in their own religious endeavors. He held a meeting for hundreds of Buddhist leaders to explain the matter and urge them to take up the challenge. Kenneth remembers the meeting but never knew that he had been under such close scrutiny
