Ireland, A. (n.d.). An Adventure with a Genius. Retrieved from

Preface: In the course of my wanderings about the labyrinth of life it has been my good fortune to find awaiting me around every corner some new adventure. If these have generally lacked that vividness of action which to the eye of youth is the very test of adventure, they have been rich in a kind of experience which to a mature and reflective mind has a value not to be measured in terms of dramatic incident. My adventures, in a word, have been chiefly those of personal contact with the sort of men whose lives are the material around which history builds its story, and from which fiction derives all that lends to it the air of reality. I have had friends and acquaintances in a score of countries, and in every station of society?kings and beggars, viceroys and wardpoliticians, judges and criminals, men of brain and men of brawn. My first outstanding adventure was with a stern and formidable man, the captain of a sailing vessel, of whose ship?s company I was one in a voyage across the Pacific.
