NOTE OF ACKNOWLEDGMENT
Through the valued assistance of the Polish Foreign Office, of the French Government, of Marshal Lyautey, of Minister Steeg, of Minister Blanc, of General Dupont and of other French officials the way was opened for me to penetrate the innermost life of the North African tribes. To all these persons and institutions I express my most heartfelt thanks, as well as to the Geographic Society of Algeria, which furnished me with much indispensable information to supplement the notes I had made during my journey.
The sincerity of my impressions and observations must stand as my only possible return for this help.
