In the Wood
(The Summary of “Noli Me Tangere”)
Padre Salvi passes near a stream, while going to the picnic organized by Ibarra. He hears some voices, hides behind a tree, and spies on Maria Clara and her friends while they bathe. After the Alferez leaves the picnic, the guardia civil arrives at the picnic, looking for Elias, the boatman who had thrown the Alferez into a mudhole and who had assaulted Padre Damaso.
