09May1872, Breakfast with the King of the Belgians

LONDON, Thursday, May 9th, 1872. Ascension Day.
—We bkfasted one of these days at No. 11 to meet the King of the Belgians. Herbert the painter, the most affected of men, rhapsodized in his ridiculous sham broken English abt the King's likeness to S. Louis and Francis I. He certainly is exactly like the pictures of the latter.
