Chapter 53:

Il Buon Dí Si Conosce Da Mattina

(The Summary of “Noli Me Tangere”)

Don Filipo visits Tasio the sage, who’s ill.  He tells Tasio that he has resigned from his position because he is fed up with the Gobernadorcillo’s ineptitude.  Tasio praises the don’s action, saying that resistance must be used not only against the Gobernadorcillo but against all persons who abuse their authority.
