To my old friend
Professor William K. Burton, of the imperial university, Tokyo, who first encouraged me, years ago, to proceed with this little story, I desire affectionately to dedicate it.
I cannot let this small romance go to press without prefacing it with a word of cordial thanks to Mr. P. G. Houlgrave, of 28, Millman Street, Bedford Row. To this gentleman I owe the accuracy of my African chapters, and I am much indebted to him for the copious details with which he furnished me.
