This is something quite exceptional, I think, for a foreign newspaper to print such topic as the Seals of the Siamese Kingdom, when not many people would have come in contact with anything to do with Siam. But, I guess it would have been something quite exotic to read about. I am glad that there is such an explanation, as I don't think a Thai would have done suce a thing, so we now have some kind explanation for the seals used by King Monkut back then, as well as an example of his signature.
