Many historical facts are common property but owe their preservation and value to writers who never received their reward. In living sixteen years with events and dates underlying this book, I have lost the respective identities of some of their recorders.

They cannot be publicly ascribed to their sources, many of which are official and confidential: they touch too closely living issues animating and breeding war. Many are simply extracts from my own journals and private records. All are confidently submitted to the public in the days work in connection with America in the Pacific the greatest problem in the world.
