Dedication --
  Pearls of thought, observations & remarks, for a short period of time, from the daily life of the author while writhing in the clutches of a forced sojourn in that previously unexplored & barbarous continent called Europe 
  At times in the company of his struggling friend Alden and his old school mate Harvey, which times are as the sunlight in a shady vista giving piquancy to the whole 
  To these two friends the author affectionately dedicates this pondorous work in memory of the happy days the "Triplets" spent together
Willie
