“One day Blanca called me to her room, very mysteriously, and she asked me to swear by God, I would not betray her secret. I swore, kissing the cross she made with her fingers. Then she took out a sheet and asked me to read to her a letter she had just received. At that moment I learned that our Blanca practically could not read. As I read aloud, I realized that this was a love letter, rather unimaginative, conventional, but a love letter after all”.
