Catalogue Note

This work was originally published, in shorter form, in the Strand. Churchill wrote to his brother Jack after negotiating a deal with the magazine, "I have received a fine offer from the Strand Magazine for five articles for £750, which I propose to accept, as it will definitely liquidate all possible expenses in this journey. There will be another £500 in book form." (17 November 1907)
