Amongst the few thus favoured of fortune

I believe the word should have been 'fortuna' in the Spanish translation. There is an online text of W. H. Hudson's Tales of the Pampas (1902):

<<Amongst the few thus favoured of fortune was Pelino Viera, a prisoner who had already been found guilty--without extenuating circumstances--of murdering his wife.>>
