Excerpt from Across America With the King of the Belgians

These first lines are my preface. It is probably not placed where authors usually place their prefaces, but I must confess that I mingled it in with the text so that the reader could recognize it and avoid it only with the greatest difficulty. The war introduced camouflage into the matters of every day life. People very rarely read a preface; they don't like to be warned ahead of time. Musset advised against reading "foolish prefaces." Critics are the only ones who read them, and then chiefly because it often enables them to dispense with reading the rest of the book.
