Being Letters of Travel from the Capitals of Europe in the Year 1921 Author: Stephen Graham Release Date: May 16, 2007 [EBook #21499] Language: English Character set encoding: ASCII *** START OF THIS PROJECT GUTENBERG EBOOK EUROPE--WHITHER BOUND? *** Produced by Al Haines EUROPE--WHITHER BOUND? (Quo Vadis Europa?) Being Letters of Travel from the Capitals of Europe in the Year 1921 BY STEPHEN GRAHAM THE RYERSON PRESS TORONTO 1922 COPYRIGHT, 1922, BY D. APPLETON AND COMPANY PREFATORY NOTE The Author's gratitude is due to many people in connexion with this book--to Bishop Nicholas of Zicca and the Rev. Hugh Chapman, of the Savoy, and Col. Treloar and Major-General Sir Fabian Ware, and the Editor of the "Narodny Listi," at Prague, and Mr. Hyka,--to these and many others who helped a traveller on his way. The letters from each capital were published in "Country Life" under the general title of _Quo Vadis Europa?_ A few after-thoughts have now been written on "Extra Leaves," and sewn in between these letters. No effort at an exhaustive study of any country is made here. The object of the author was to make a rapid tour from capital to capital, "keeping the taxi waiting," so to say, and thus obtain an idea of Europe as a whole. It is perhaps one of the first books of travel written from the point of view of Europe as a unity, and it is hoped it will help to make us all good Europeans. CONTENTS LETTERS OF TRAVEL I.
