Editor's Note: I have not been able to find anything out about the game "Bow to the King and Queen".  I researched along the lines of "parlour games" but nothing obvious came up.  I wonder if anyone knows of this game and could let me know how it was played?  I guess it just got wild and silly.

Additionally, if anyone knows what became of the Wescotts I'd love to know that as well.  I believe Aunt Ruth last lived in Canastota, NY.  She and George had two sons in the 1910s, George, Jr and C(K?)arl.  They grew up in Ithaca, NY.  Can't find if the boys had families or anything.
