Castles in the Air

; Baroness Emmuska Orczy ; 1st World Library (Redaktør)

My name is Ratichon - Hector Ratichon, at your service, and I make so bold
as to say that not even my worst enemy would think of minimizing the value of
my services to the State. For twenty years now have I placed my powers at the
disposal of my country: I have served the Republic, and was confidential agent
to Citizen Robespierre; I have served the Empire, and was secret factotum to
our great Napoleon; I have served King Louis - with a brief interval of one
hundred days - for the past two years, and I can only repeat that no one, in
the whole of France, has been so useful or so zealous in tracking criminals,
nosing out conspiracies, or denouncing traitors as I have been. Les mer

My name is Ratichon - Hector Ratichon, at your service, and I make so bold
as to say that not even my worst enemy would think of minimizing the value of
my services to the State. For twenty years now have I placed my powers at the
disposal of my country: I have served the Republic, and was confidential agent
to Citizen Robespierre; I have served the Empire, and was secret factotum to
our great Napoleon; I have served King Louis - with a brief interval of one
hundred days - for the past two years, and I can only repeat that no one, in
the whole of France, has been so useful or so zealous in tracking criminals,
nosing out conspiracies, or denouncing traitors as I have been. And yet you see
me a poor man to this day: there has been a persistently malignant Fate which
has worked against me all these years, and would - but for a happy circumstance
of which I hope anon to tell you - have left me just as I was, in the matter of
fortune, when I first came to Paris and set up in business as a volunteer
police agent at No, 96 Rue Daunou.
