KIRKUS REVIEW

This covers the early days of the author's life as a career diplomat, ending with the entrance of the U. S. into the Great War, and one can but hope he will carry on his chronicle, for its simplicity and sincerity and the many entertaining digressions make it good reading. Yale and business, which he hated, study in Paris, since that was the start for a diplomatic career, then as private secretary to the Minister to Portugal where he received valuable training in what the Foreign Service was all about, next he passed his examinations in Washington and was sent to Guatemala, Buenos Aires, Berlin, Vienna and Geneva. Personal experiences in the various assignments, with acute characterizations. Very worthwhile as interesting biography and the beginnings of a diplomatic career.
