When Personal Recollections of Joan of Arc was first published in Harper's Magazine, the reading public did not realize that the work was written by Mark Twain.... The personal reflections of Joan of Arc are those of de Conte, who first recalls his origins from an aristocratic family, which in his early youth was massacred because of its French nationalist sympathies. De Conte himself was sent to Domremy, where he was reared by a priest who taught him to read and write, in his time rare abilities which later suited him to become Joan's secretary during her military campaign. These same abilities de Conte used to advantage when traveling incognito to Rouen, the city of Joan's trial, where he secured a place for himself on the staff of the court reporter. Prefacing his memoirs with a letter to his intended readers, his great, great grandnephews and -nieces, the octogenarian de Conte identified himself first as a childhood playmate of Joan of Arc and later as her page and secretary. The memoir itself is divided into three parts: village life at Domremy, on campaign with Joan, and Joan's trial for witchcraft. -Introd
