Oct 21, 1898 Herzl Meets Kaiser Wilhelm II of Germany

“The Great Game”

One more recollection. Most of the time the Kaiser looked me full in the face. Only when I spoke of the new overland route to Asia-Mediterranean, Persian gulf- did he stare into space as though lost in thought, and the thoughtful expression on his fine, serious face revealed to me that I had fully gripped him.
