SET DOWN IN MALICE SET DOWN IN MALICE A BOOK OF REMINISCENCES BY GERALD CUMBERLAND ❦ “Do I contradict myself? Very well, then, I contradict myself.” Walt Whitman. BRENTANO’S NEW YORK MDCCCCXIX PRINTED IN GREAT BRITAIN BY THE RIVERSIDE PRESS LIMITED EDINBURGH UXORI HORAS AMISSAS REDDO PREFATORY NOTE Very many of the following pages were written in the trenches and dug-outs of Greece and Serbia. I added a chapter or two in Port Said, Alexandria and Marseilles. That is to say, I wrote far away from books and without reference to documents, and I wrote to refresh a mind dulled by the conditions of Active Service in the Near East. A few chapters were written in London and a few in Winchester. Here and there may be found factual inaccuracies, though if these exist I am not aware of them. But the spirit of the book is as near the truth as I can bring it. Gerald Cumberland Winchester 2nd June 1918 CONTENTS CHAPTER PAGE I. Mr George Bernard Shaw 11 II.
