Notes
"Glossary of French expressions in the text": v. 3, p. 559-[572]
"While the volume published under the name of Friends of France, in 1916, contained numerous accounts of the work of the early days--many of them being here reprinted--that volume was of necessity more or less provisional and incomplete. The aim of these volumes is to fill in the gaps and finish the story...The stories of the several sections have been composed in the main of excarpts from articles, diaries and home letters of different members...The final selection and revision of the material has been mainly the work of Lieutenant James W.D. Seymour, of Section seventeen."--Prefatory note signed: The American field service.
