Om boka

Purchase one of 1st World Library's Classic Books and help support our

www.1stWorldLibrary.ORG - - It is a misfortune to some fiction-writers that
fiction and unveracity in the average person's mind mean one and the same
thing. Several years ago I published a South Sea novel. The action was placed
in the Solomon Islands. The action was praised by the critics and reviewers as
a highly creditable effort of the imagination. As regards reality - they said
there wasn't any. Of course, as every one knew, kinky-haired cannibals no
longer obtained on the earth's surface, much less ran around with nothing on,
chopping off one another's heads, and, on occasion, a white man's head as well.
Now listen. I am writing these lines in Honolulu, Hawaii. Yesterday, on the
beach at Waikiki, a stranger spoke to me. He mentioned a mutual friend, Captain
Kellar. When I was wrecked in the Solomons on the blackbirder, the Minota, it
was Captain Kellar, master of the blackbirder, the Eugenie, who rescued me. The
blacks had taken Captain Kellar's head, the stranger told me. He
knew.

He had represented Captain Kellar's mother in settling up the
estate.
