Even though it may surprise some people, I have to say that I consider the time Ron was at thecompany, from 1968 until 1976 (when he left under some fairly unpleasant circumstances for both of us),to be the most important period of development in Wal-Mart's history. We had a good thing goingbefore Ron arrived, but he, and some of the people he brought on board, like Royce Chambers, our firstdata processing manager, gave the company its first sophisticated systems.

Lord Dover says that the very evening of the day of the betrothing a courier arrived from England with dispatches announcing that the English court had yielded to all the stipulations demanded by the King of Prussia in reference to the marriage of Wilhelmina to the Prince of Wales. It was now too late to retract. Probably both the king and Wilhelmina were gratified in being able to decline the offer. But the chagrin of the queen was terrible.
