One wonderful day, a very important lady came to the hospital to visit him.I met the lady, and took her to his room.Then I opened the door, and smiled at him. 'Good morning, Joseph,' I said.'There is a new visitor to see you today. A very famous lady.'Merrick stood up beside his table.He did not smile, because his face could not smile, but his eyes looked happy.'That's good,' he said. 'Who is it?'I moved away from the door, and the visitor walked in. 'Your Majesty, this is Joseph Merrick,' I said.'Joseph, this is Her Majesty, Queen Alexandra, the Queen of England.'Queen Alexandra smiled at him. 'How―How do you do, Mr Merrick,' She said. 'I'm very pleased to meet you.' Then she shook his hand.Merrick did not move.For nearly half a minute he stood and looked at her with his mouth open.
