Chapter 47:

The Two Señoras

(The Summary of “Noli Me Tangere”)

Doña Victorina and Don Tiburcio pass by the house of the Alferez, as Doña Consolacion mocks and ridicules Doña Espadaña and her crippled husband.  The two women start exchanging insults and almost get into a fight that is averted by the arrival of the Alferez and Padre Salvi.  To defend her honor, Doña Victorina asks Linares to challenge the Alferez to a duel.
