der Tann. Your secret is as safe with me as with yourself,
At the time of which I write, there might be seen in the registers of the Minister of War the following entry:
SERVADAC (_Hector_), born at St. Trelody in the district of Lesparre, department of the Gironde, July 19th, 18--.
_Property:_ 1200 francs in rentes.
_Length of service:_ Fourteen years, three months, and five days.
_Service:_ Two years at school at St. Cyr; two years at L'Ecole d'Application; two years in the 8th Regiment of the Line; two years in the 3rd Light Cavalry; seven years in Algeria.
_Rank:_ Captain on the staff at Mostaganem.
_Decorations:_ Chevalier of the Legion of Honor, March 13th, 18--.
Hector Servadac was thirty years of age, an orphan without lineage and almost without means. Thirsting for glory rather than for gold, slightly scatter-brained, but warm-hearted, generous, and brave, he was eminently formed to be the protege of the god of battles.
