Beschreibung:

British played cricket. Perhaps we are less tena cious' of afternoon tea than they, but women's clubs ?ourish on the Zone as they do in Kansas, while as for bridge it proceeds -as uninterruptedly as the ?ow of the dirt out of the Culebra Cut. Nobody could return from the Zone without a desire to. Express thanks for the hospitalities shown him andthe author is fortunate. In possessing the opportunity to 'do so publicly. Particularly do I wish to acknowledge indebtedness or aid in the preparation of this book to C01. George W. Goethals, Chairman and Engineer in Chief, and to Col. W. C. Gorgas, Commissioner and Chief Sani tary Officer. It. Goes without saying that without the friendly aid and cooperation of Col. Goethals no adequate description of the canal work and the life of the workers could ever be written. To the then Secretary of War, Hon. Henry L. Stimson, under whose able administration of the Department of War 'much of the canal progress noted in this book was made, the author is indebted for personal and official introductions, and to Hon. John Bar rett, one time United States Minister to Colombia and, new Director General of the Pan American Union, much is owed for advice and suggestion from a mind richly stored with latin-american facts.
