Excerpt from Thoughts of a Greek

In presenting "The Thoughts of a Greek" to the public, I consider it my duty to mention some facts in reference to the work in general and its purpose in particular.

It has long been my intention to publish material of amusement as well as educational. More than once I have attempted to accomplish my such intentions, but, instead, I repeatedly tore up manuscripts to which I had devoted my spare time and time which I ought to grant to my mind and body for rest. The greatest obstacle - and I would dare to say the only one - which has caused me to be dissatisfied with my productions, has been lack of mastering the English language, because, I confess, though I am an American in what it takes to apparently make one, I am nevertheless of Greek origin, and twelve years' stay in my adopted mother land, America, could not grant me sufficient admittance into the depths of the wonderful phraseology, as well as equal number of years absence from my mother land, Greece, could not deprive my mind of recollections and topics of my childhood days.

It is natural for humanity to love the country that for the first time one has seen the light of day. This natural fact I will illustrate from my own experience, to the results of which this Preface owes its existence.

When my mother land called to arms all men from the age of twenty up to thirty-five years for the sake of preserving the sacred Allies' Oath and for the welfare of the Christians of Turkey in Europe, those natural and also sacred instincts within me, rose all of a sudden and dictated me the word "Go." Yes, I must go, I mused, in response to the demand upon my own self. I must at least teud my services to the country which I abandoned and of which part of my family composes a portion of its populace.
