At the time of Rigaud's arrival Christophe waswithin a few miles of this city. A courier fromthe west told the officer in command of his armiesthat his power had been broken on the west, and thatPetion was absolute master of the south. Theofficer immediately sent dispatches to Rigaud, byone of his subordinates, and kept him constantlyinformed of the movements of the enemy. Christophe, to whom a courier could not arrive in time to inspire himwith confidence, was attacked and defeated, andfor the first time, since the establishment ofhis government, the chief found himselfcompelled to sustain a defeat. This was thebeginning of his end. The men who had so recently been hisfiercest antagonists, whose lives he had often saved,turned against him, and in a short time he wascompelled to make a precipitate retreat. Christophe,who had never been defeated, was now at themercy of his enemies.
There is a great difference between a brilliantleader and a good man. Few men have excelled inboth, and fewer still have been really good. Christophe, of all the men of the world, was the only one who could be calledgood, and he never was, in his entire life, anything elsethan a disturber. He may have been a clever politicalpioneer, but he was not a statesman. He had not thecommanding mind that could understand the wants of thepeople, and direct their political movements, and whatis more, had not the force of will to govern them. Underhis rule, the mulatto people were called out of theirlabor, and suffered from want of food. The coast linewas infested with pirates, and he still kept hispeople from planting the banana. He was a slave tohis white wife, and had much trouble in keeping hispeople together. He was a slave to his blackmistresses, and had a great deal of trouble in keepinghimself from evil. Christophe, in his public life, wasa very useful and a very dangerous man; he was analmost perfect specimen of a black leader. He understoodthe black, and could manage him, but he was not a manwhom any one could respect. Christophe was born inAfrica; all the white men there thought him littlebetter than a demon, and all the black men feared him.His personal appearance was striking in theextreme. He was tall, and powerfully built.

One of the drawbacks to this approach was that we needed to recompile every time we made even a small change to the code. This slowed everything else we were doing down and because we couldn't always have someone waiting for the application to finish building. 827ec27edc
