He is thoughtful, and has the reputation of being extremely just.
Page 39 - And first of all, his Majesty is twenty-nine years old, and extremely handsome ; nature could not have done more for him ; he is much handsomer than any other sovereign in Christendom, a great deal handsomer than the King of France ; very fair, and his whole frame is admirably proportioned.

Our king does not desire gold or gems or precious metals, but virtue, glory, immortality.
