Siam: Kenneth on Lord Lieutenant Who Helped Circulate KL's Tracts


The Lord Lieutenant, the province governor, was named Phya Si Thammarat. "Lord Lieutenant" was a very high rank. He was over three provinces, with three governors under him, and he controlled the country from the Songkhla area north all the way to Chumphon, in the Kra Isthmus area. Kenneth had called on the Lord Lieutenant when he came into their area, and the Lord Lieutenant said that he had used Kenneth and what he was doing in a speech that he had made to the monks. He asked Kenneth what he would want to do, and Kenneth says he hoped to put his portions of the Bible in every home. The governor said that if Kenneth would print the many tens of thousands of booklets it would take to get them into every home, he would make sure that his administration distributed them for Kenneth. This is exactly what happened.
