Chapter Summary

The author was born in Japan and grew up to the age of nearly eight speaking English and Japanese with equal fluency. But for him the great attraction of the Levant branch was that successful candidates were sent to Cambridge, with the style of Student Interpreter, for two years of further study at Government expense, to get to Oxford or Cambridge somehow being then the summit of him ambition. The author and his group took their final examinations at the end of the long-vacation term of 1912. Between Naples and Athens, in the middle of the night, the author and his group ran into a violent storm, with fog, rain, thunder and lightning, and huge waves dashing against the port-holes. It was still dark when the author and his group reached Constantinople the next morning.
