SEDILLE, a native of Lyons, who established himself in Paris, and after
thirty years' toil succeeded in making his silk business one of the best
known in the city. Unfortunately he acquired a passion for gambling, and
a couple of successful ventures made him altogether lose his head. From
that time he neglected his business, and ruin lay inevitably at the end.
On the invitation of Saccard he became a Director of the Universal Bank.
Like the other Directors, he speculated largely in the shares of the
Bank; but, unlike most of them, he did not sell in time, with the result
that he was completely ruined, and his bankruptcy followed. L'Argent.
