It was on the Empress of Russia, in the early sum mer of 1920, that a certain group met. They were a mixed crowd, English, American and Oriental, gath ered for ten days to scatter over many eastern lands Japan and the further coast of China, the Malay Peninsula, the Philippine Islands - even of India, and in some cases eventually Europe. The winds blow cold upon that trip all the year round, with a touch of the northern ice in them: and the long chain of the Aleutian Islands, snow-clad volcanic peaks, strung like beads for a necklace on the Arctic, are surely the austerest jewels of the Seven Seas. So the passengers are much engaged in indoor occupations, and meet in groups in sheltered places for employments con genial to their desires. For our part we gathered round a little woman of Scottish Canadian blood, who told us the strangest story in all the world. That story is the present volume.
