Hardback Publication Date: 23/08/2018

Excerpt from Secret History of to-Day: Being Revelations of a Diplomatic Spy In these reminiscences it is my object to recount some of the services I have rendered to civilisation in the course of my career, While abstaining as far as possible from compromising exalted individuals or embittering international relations.

That I am not a man who opens his mouth rashly may be gathered from the fact that, although at any time during the long struggle between Briton and Boer for the mastery in South Africa, I might have completely changed the situation with a word, that word was not uttered while a single Boer remained under arms.

In order to explain how I came to be concerned in this affair, I had better begin by giving a few particulars about myself, and the almost unique position which I hold among the secret service bureaus of Europe and America.
