CHAPTER I: VERY EARLY DAYS. ONE morning towards the end of the year 18893 a lady who lived in a terrace of houses on the top of a high rock surrounded by battlements descended into the kitchen to order the food for the day. She was in a few months time to have a child. She was suddenly seized with a strong feeling that she must come upstairs, cross the garden and look down on the seashore. The impulse became so strong that she went upstairs, crossed the garden and looked over the battlements. Standing on the shore far below was a man with dark hypnotic eyes. This man, whenever he saw her, stared at her in a way that frightened her he had lived a long time in the East. The child she was about to bear was myself. I have often wondered if that man hypnotized her in any way that may afterwards have affected me or induced me to start on a career that was so different from that of my family or my upbringing. On February the fourteenth, 1890, I was born. Everybody was furious, especially my Father, who still is. As soon as I became conscious of anything I was furious too, at having been born a girl I have since discovered that it has certain advantages. My first recollection of anything is walking downstairs, step by step, to join a little boy who was standing at. Bookseller Inventory # APC9781443724463
