CLEMENT KING SHORTER

I INSCRIBE THIS STORY WITH DEEP

REGARD



AUTHOR'S NOTE

It may not be without interest here to recall the fact that tradition tells to-day of a woman in Southern Europe who takes with her to many cities the reputation of a wrecker. Nor is the scene of the work, which gossip ascribes to her, removed by many leagues from that shore upon which some of the happenings in this book are laid. The account of the means by which bullion is shipped to the Continent by two, at least, of our greater financial houses is, I believe, accurate in all its details. I am much indebted to one who has recently returned from Russia on such a business as I have here ventured to describe for many of the particulars incorporated in the story.
