"In her earlier volume of selections from her diaries, the Princess of Pless was mainly concerned to present a picture of social and political life in the highest European circles in pre-war Europe, and to give an inside account of life in Germany through the Great War: the remarkable success of her unique and vivid volume resulted in a very wide demand for a successor in which the authoress might reveal something more of a personality that seems to have proved almost as winning and attracive in the pages of a book, as it is in life. Scores of reviewers, and hundreds of letter writers, have begged the Princess to publish another book that would tell them "something more about herself": the present volume is the result."--Page [} vii
