eng2-001-6 Study of the postcard autographed by King Sihanouk

For recording the fact of Chinese fight flood in China 1998 and the contribution of King Sihanouk to the flooding disaster area in China, I nerved myself to send a postcard for asking King's autograph. The postcard was wrote in French ( my friend Li translated it): " Votre Majeste Le Roi Norodom Sihanouk, Je suis un employe retraite d'un grand entreprise d'Etat a Nanjing de la Chine et aussi un philateliste de bien des annees. Les Chinois ordinaires, surtout ceux de ma geneation,et moi, nous avons ds grande admiration pour votre vie en luttant pour les affaires d'independance national de Cambodge. Au moment ou la Chine a subit un grave innondation catastrophique,I'information donne par les presse chinoises que vous avez fait un don en argent pour ces zones innondees nous a beaucoup touche de nouveaux(voir le copy attache a titre "le roi Norodom S ihanouk fait un don en argent. pour les zones innonnnudees de la Chine"). pour portert secours aux sinistres, on publie aujourd'hui un group de timbres(comme colle en cette carte). pour noter a jamis votre sincere affection pour le peuble chinois et deployer la bonne relation de Sino-Cambodgien cooperation amicale je vous prie de faire la signature autographe en cette carte et renvoyer a moi pour que la collectionner comme un precieux donnee historique de philatelie. veuillez agree mes sincere remerciements Je vous souuhaite de bonne sante et longevite un philateliste chinois age de 61 an Han Wen Guang Sep.10,1998."


At that time, the news papers reported that the political situation in Cambodia was in trouble caused by the general election. King maybe lived at Palace in Siemreab. To test my lucky, I sent the postcard to the address: His Majesty King Norodom Sihanouk King residential palace Siemreab, Cambodia (see 2-001-1)


News showed that the turbulence was exacerbated quickly at that time.7 September the house of the second premier of Cambodia was damaged by the explode, 9 September the blood conflict took place between the police and the demonstrator. At same time, King was busy to mediate the severe antagonize of parties. Can the King receive my postcard? Can King autograph for a small potato as me?...I almost negated myself.


A "miracle" appeared on Oct.7.! I received King's reply from Cambodia at last. When I doubtfully opened it, I saw my postcard like the ambassador sent by me and a beautiful signature on it. Oh! Sihanouk! Below was a line of small French words, "Roi du Cambodge". You can image how exciting my heart was. In this case. I was wondering whether the signature was real. In order to confirming the sign, I sought many books and information. I received late a letter of King (see2-001-7).I was sure in the end, This was exactly King's autograph!(See below pictures) I was so lucky to get it.

Spirit feelings

After you carefulness studied the date of the autograph by king and the jeopardy political situation of CAMBODIA in that period, I think that everyone all will bring a spirit feeling and plaint!

The time my postcard stayed in SIEMREAP was Sep.22-25,1998. Just this is nervousest time for king SIHANOUK. While CAMBODIA nation is faced with break, King again made huge contribution taking his high prestige and art of managing state affairs for CAMBODIA nation, his busyness and tight is imaginable. Do you know? KING has been advanced age of 76 and suffered from a serious illness! But he still autograph for a ordinary Chinese citizen in that time. Why is this? I frequently ponder the problem at night when all is still. I look at those stamps with King's portrait--from a brilliant and handsome young man until a grey- headed old man, he represented one era of one nation--This is his life struggling for CAMBODIA national independence. I read over many books, information about him, I was aware of King's warmly feeling for CHINA and hers people and I personal strong experienced this kind feeling. Honour King SIHANOUK, I sincerely wish you good health and a long life, wish your country will move towards a broad road to national revive, reappearing the brilliant and splendid ANGKOR civilization in the nations of the world!
