IN THE publication of this volume on the countries of
North Africa I wish to thank the Secretary of State for letters which have given me the assistance of
our official representatives in the countries visited. I thank also our Secretary of Agriculture and our Secretary of Labour for appointing me an Honorary Commissioner of their Departments in foreign lands. Their credentials have been of the greatest value, making accessible sources of information seldom opened to the ordinary traveller.
I acknowledge also the assistance and cooperation rendered by Mr. Dudley Harmon, my editor, and Miss Ellen McBryde Brown and Miss Josephine Lehmann in the revision of the notes dictated or penned by me on the ground.
While most of the illustrations are from my own negatives, certain photographs have been supplied by the French colonial officials in Morocco, Algeria, and Tunisia, the American Geographical Society, the American Red Cross, and the Publishers' Photo Service, all of which are protected by copyright.
