A PRELIMINARY WORD.
As the incidents related herein took place during voyages between America and England, I dedicate this book to the
WITENAGEMOTE CLUB OF DETROIT
VAGABOND CLUB OF LONDON,
in the hope that if anyone charges me with telling a previously told tale, the fifty members of each club will rise as one man and testify that they were called upon to endure the story in question from my own lips prior to the alleged original appearance of the same.
