Description
Excerpt: AUTHOR?S NOTE. Of the three long novels of mine which suffered an interruption, ?The Rescue? was the one that had to wait the longest for the good pleasure of the Fates. I am betraying no secret when I state here that it had to wait precisely for twenty years. I laid it aside at the end of the summer of 1898 and it was about the end of the summer of 1918 that I took it up again with the firm determination to see the end of it and helped by the sudden feeling that I might be equal to the task. This does not mean that I turned to it with elation. I was well aware and perhaps even too much aware of the dangers of such an adventure. The amazingly sympathetic kindness which men of various temperaments, diverse views and different literary tastes have been for years displaying towards my work has done much for me, has done all ? except giving me that over?weening self?confidence which may assist an adventurer sometimes but in the long run ends by leading him to the gallows.
