Mother Knows Best: Joseph's visit

Another bit of advice from Marie Antoinette's mom!

"In a month you will see the Emperor, an interesting epoch for you. You know his kind heart and also his sagacity [wisdom]; from the former you have everything to expect; from the latter everything to gain. I hope that you will confide in him frankly… I hope that he will commend himself to the King; and when the first embarrassment is past, that they will be friends."

Maria Theresa, 2 Janurary1777

Also....just for fun....
This is a rather humorous interpretation of Joseph's visit to France!
