Sir Walter Raleighby John Buchan. You have given me permission to put your name in this book, so I owe it to you to explain its purpose. It is a life of Sir Walter Raleigh, told in eleven stories. I have taken the chief scenes in his life, and made some friend or follower write about them as'if he had seen them with his own eyes. I do not know if there was ever a Gervase Luttrell or a Nathan Stubbs, but I know that people just like them lived in Raleigh's day, and saw and heard the things they write about here.
