9781330095829: The Confessions of a Con Man as Told to Will Irwin (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The Confessions of a Con Man as Told to Will Irwin

When these confessions appeared serially, friends and distant enquirers took it for granted that they were fiction; that I had stitched together, from the experiences of many grafters, the biography of a typical one. I hasten to assure the reader that this is a genuine confession; that I figure in it but as the transcriber of a life story told me - I believe with every conscientious effort at truth - during a month of pleasant association in New York. As a reporter, a little skilled in distinguishing the truth from the lie, I believed, when I wrote, in the sincerity of this story. Since then letters from his old companions of the road, who wished to be put into communication with him again, have confirmed detail after detail.
