    “Cacambo asked one of the great officers in what way he should pay his obeisance to his Majesty; whether they should throw themselves upon their knees or on their stomachs; whether they should put their hands upon their heads or behind their backs; whether they should lick the dust off the floor; in a word, what was the ceremony?
    ‘The custom,” said the great officer, ‘is to embrace the King, and to kiss him on each cheek.’”
