The Arch Seraph Ksheltarna



    "You will understand the reason for this if I tell you that among those who shared my exile from its very beginning was the chief tzirlikner of our planet Karatas, the still young but already very learned Pooloodjistius, who, after our all-gracious pardon, was considered worthy to be, and still is today, an assistant to the Great Observer of the movements of all the concentrations of the Megalocosmos--His Self-Keepness the Arch Seraph Ksheltarna.

     "And so, when I began to organize my observatory on the planet Mars, the learned Pooloodjistius proposed that I should take him as inspector and manager of this new establishment."
