The introduction tells us of the title: "This collection of stories has been labelled "The Veiled Lady" as being the easiest way out of a dilemma; and yet the title may be misleading. While, beyond doubt, there is between these covers a most charming and lovable Houri, to whom the nightingales sing lullabies, there can also be found a surpassingly beautiful Venetian whose love affairs upset a Quarter, a common-sense, motherly nurse whose heart warmed toward her companion in the adjoining berth, a plucky New England girl with the courage of her convictions, and a prim spinster whose only consolation was the boarder who sat opposite." Hence, we have a collection of short stories about people and their relationships, all of whom might be called 'veiled.'
Myanmar's Pearls are noted not only for lustre and beauty but also for their large size. The Myeik (Mergui) area is Myanmar's Large Pearl-producing area. Under the British colonial Government, fishing rights were auctioned every year and the successful bidders always harvestet good profit in fishing out natural pearls.
