Epigraph
'The mariners are a pleasant people, but little like those in the towns, and they can speak no other language than that used in ships.'
The Licenciate Vidriera.
Dedication
Some of this book was written in my boyhood, all of it in my youth; it is now re-issued, much as it was when first published nearly eleven years ago.
J.M.
9th June 1913
First words
A CONSECRATION

Not of the princes and prelates with periwigged charioteers
Riding triumphantly laurelled to lap the fat of the years, -
Rather the scorned - the rejected - the men hemmed in with the spears;

The men of the tattered battalion which fights till it dies,
Dazed with the dust of battle, the din and the cries,
The men with the broken heads and the blood running into ther eyes.
