With the law of libel looming darkly, the reason is obvious. Since the days when, as lads, we played cricket together at Cheltenham the Prince, always a sportsman and always generous to the poor, has ever been my friend. In the course of my own wandering life of the past dozen years or so, I have come across him in all sorts of unexpected places up and down Europe, and more especially in those countries beyond the Danube which we term the Balkans. For certain of his actions, and for the ingenuity of his somewhat questionable friends, I make no apology. While the game of mug-hunting remains so easy and so profitable, there will be always both hunters and hunted. As my friends escapades were related to me, so have I set them down in the following pages, in the belief that my readers may perhaps care to make more intimate acquaintance with the clever, fearless, and altogether remarkable man whose exploits have already, from time to time, been referred to in guarded and mysterious terms by the daily press.
