"When a man sits down to write a book about him self, generally he does so from one of four reasons: sheer impertinence; a lack of humour; the hope of advertise ment; or because he knows that while writing little about himself it gives him an opportunity to saya great deal about other people. I frankly plead guilty to the last two; and having gone thus far on the road of truth, let me push on yet another milestone."
