As soon as I heard that the Dauphine was to be sent to Port-au-Prince, I was determined to go with her. My brother had told me about the barracoon my father and his partner owned in that city, the warehouse in which they kept the men, women, and children the slave catchers caught in the surrounding hills.

It was no random shape the lamps and the flambeaux slowly built up there below me, but a long, curved saber with its point resting in the jungle, its handle a half-mile away on the shore.
