ToCaroline GrosvenorDuring the past year, in the intervals of an active life, I have amusedmyself with constructing this tale. It has been scribbled in every kind of odd place and moment - in England and abroad, during long journeys,in half-hours between graver tasks; and it bears, I fear, the mark of itsgipsy begetting. But it has amused me to write, and I shall be well repaidif it amuses you - and a few others - to read.Let no man or woman call its events improbable. The war has driventhat word from our vocabulary, and melodrama has become the prosiestrealism. Things unimagined before happen daily to our friends by seaand land. The one chance in a thousand is habitually taken, and as oftenas not succeeds. Coincidence, like some new Briareus, stretches a hun-dred long arms hourly across the earth. Some day, when the full historyis written - sober history with ample documents - the poor romancer willgive up business and fall to reading Miss Austen in a hermitage.The characters of the tale, if you think hard, you will recall. Sandy youknow well. That great spirit was last heard of at Basra, where he occu-pies the post that once was Harry Bullivant's. Richard Hannay is wherehe longed to be, commanding his battalion on the ugliest bit of front inthe West. Mr John S. Blenkiron, full of honour and wholly cured of dys-pepsia, has returned to the States, after vainly endeavouring to take Peterwith him. As for Peter, he has attained the height of his ambition. He hasshaved his beard and joined the Flying Corps.
