“He’s extremely funny and entertaining, the sort of writer who can never get to his point without first navigating the side streets, poking in alleys, browsing at store windows and chatting with passersby, until at last you don’t care about his point anymore, having enjoyed the saunter.

To believe is to know that
every day is a new beginning.
Is to trust that miracles happen,
and dreams really do come true.

To believe is to see angels
dancing among the clouds,
To know the wonder of a stardust sky
and the wisdom of the man in the moon.

To believe is to know the value of a nurturing heart,
The innocence of a child's eyes
and the beauty of an aging hand,
for it is through their teachings we learn to love.

HOSPITALITY AND ENCOURAGEMENT
EXTENDED ME, I DEDICATE THIS LITTLE
VOLUME—THE SIMPLE STORY OF MY LIFE ON
THE ROAD FOR UPWARD OF A GENERATION

Mr. Skidelsky's narrative is a record of men and times, a running story of biography, skilfully unrolled. He has traveled the country very thoroughly; met with men of all kinds and nationalities, and has been so keenly observant through all of the years that to us older men particularly his writings and character descriptions ring wonderfully true and bring back many recollections.
