And the Admiral spake:
Let the Coronation begin
with my gracious blessing upon this Grand Occasion
Yesterday, the Most Lovely and Beauteous
Queen of Tennessee
The Gracious Katie will be crowned by Punapippuri, King Kitty Cat of Finland (N)
and myself, Spitty-the-Kitty, King of California (N) & the Western Lands
Katie-Isabella is escorted on this Momentous Occasion
by her Dear Friend
The Coronation Oath
Spitty R: Will you solemnly promise and swear to govern the Peoples of Tennessee and any other parts of the Neighboring States that seem to need your Guiding Paw, and the other Territories to any of them belonging or pertaining, according to their respective laws and customs?
Katie Isabella: I solemnly promise so to do.
Spitty R: Will you with your Mighty Claws cause Law and Justice, in Mercy, to be executed in all your judgments?
Katie Isabella: I will.
Spitty R: Will you to the utmost of your power maintain the Laws of Ceiling Cat? Will you maintain and preserve inviolably the rights of all Kittehs in your charge, ensuring all rights and privileges, as by law do or shall pertain to them or any of them?
Katie Isabella: All this I promise to do.
Then Katie Isabella, arising up from Her Cushion, supported as before by Boomie, the Great Toys of State being carried before Her, went unto the Mighty Catnip Plant, to make Her solemn Oath in the sight of all the Kittehs present: Laying Her right Paw upon the Book of Purina (which was before carried in the procession and is now brought from the Catnip Plant by Spitty R and tendered to Her as She reclines upon the steps), She pronounces these words:
Katie Isabella: The things which I have here before promised, I will perform and keep. So help me Ceiling Cat.
At this time, King Spitty & King Punapippuri, assisted by the Gracious Boomie, place the Royal Crown of Tennessee upon the Furry Head of Katie-Isabella, thereby sealing her Coronation as Queen:
