Chapter 1

Fix It

In a castle of westphalia, belonging to the Baron of Thunder-ten-Tronckh, lived a youth, that nature had endowed with the most gentle manners. His countinance was a true picture of his sole. He combined a true judgment with simplicity of spirit, which was the reason, I apprehend, of his being called candide. The old servants of the family suspected him to have been the son of the Barons sister, by a good, honest gentleman of the nieghborhood, whom that young lady would never marry because he had been able to prove only seventy-one quarterings, the rest of his genealogical tree having been lost threw the injuries of time.
