""I venture to express the opinion that the simple, direct and soldierly style in which Mr. Harold Harvey has written the notes that accompany his illustrations will be appreciated. His reticence as regards his own doings, the casual nature of his references-where they could not be avoided-to his personal share in great achievements, manifest a spirit of self-effacement that is characteristic of the men of the army in which he fought; men whose like the world has never known."" ""Sketched in circumstances that certainly had their own disadvantages as well as their special advantages, I present these drawings only for what they are.""
