Two! Two subjects! Ha ha ha ha ha...

Agreement signed by Shmuel, in consideration whereof, he is hereby appointed Grand Vizier of the Kingdom of Mary Anne:

"Droit du seigneur to be waived, of course, that being more appropriate for the commoners, but you'll get the undying loyalty (never mind the fingers crossed behind my back as I take the oath; it's an old family tradition signifying how intertwined our lives will be henceforth), the taxes (that bill I wanted you to sign?
