Part IV Summary Miss Eufrasia Morales declares that she has known for some time that the romance between Camilo and Rosa has hidden "something abominable” Her first clue came from a friend o This friend asked Eufrasia if she knew of anyone who could do a portrait "from life" Eufrasia referred her friend to Camilo Canegato, and some time later, Eufrasia asked her friend how it had gone Eufrasia's friend reported that it had gone poorly because Camilo had admitted that he couldn't do portraits from life but only painted over enlarged photographs o Therefore, when Camilo talked about his romance with Rosa developing as she sat for a portrait, Eufrasia knew something was amiss Secondly, Eufrasia makes reference to the little maid Elsa, who works at La Madrilena For years, Eufrasia has noticed that the maid has been infatuated by Camilo Canegato o Elsa spends extra time cleaning and straightening Camilo's room, and she gives him extra large portions of food at the dinner table, which Eufrasia notices because her own portions are then smaller o Eufrasia reports that Elsa spilled soup on Camilo the night his affair with Rosa was made public After this, Elsa becomes more withdrawn and ceases speaking altogether The day of the fight between Camilo and David Reguel during siesta time, Eufrasia is awakened by the noise and puts her head to the wall to catch what they are saying o She overhears Rosa saying, "If I leave, what will the people here think?" She can't hear what Camilo says in his low voice, but then she hears Rosa say, "If you want me to leave, you're going to have to give me every last penny you've got in the bank. I wouldn't leave here for anything less” Then Rosa threatens to tell Matilda what Camilo thinks about her and the argument blows up into a fight with David coming in to rescue Rosa o After the hubbub has subsided, Eufrasia sees Elsa lingering about in Rosa's room Later, Eufrasia overhears Camilo and Rosa talking in the garden o Camilo tells Rosa that "there aren't any more letters from Rosa," and Rosa asks if something is torn up She is afraid that someone might find it Eufrasia tells the inspector that she believes there is a letter that contains important information about the investigation, but she doesn't know where it is Soon thereafter, Elsa takes a day off, which she has never done before, and goes to Lujan (Miss Eufrasia finds a secondclass train ticket to Lujan after Elsa returns) o No one knows what she did while she was there During the entire investigation, Elsa has trembled and groaned o After the wedding, Eufrasia finds Elsa weeping bitterly in the kitchen Part V Summary Elsa leads Inspector Julian Aguirre to her bedroom where she pulls a letter out of a book in her bottom dresser drawer o The long letter, written by Marta Correga (actually Maria Chinca) ,does not in any way resemble the perfumed letters Rosa sent to the house for several months The handwriting is wild and the spelling and grammar atrocious The discovery of this letter explains Elsa's anonymous phone calls to the police and her fruitless journey to Lujan in search of Mrs. Ana Chinca o The letter also clears Camilo's name and proclaims his innocence o In addition, it will be the vehicle by which Sarkis Abulaf, alias Slit Turk, is sentenced to life imprisonment for the murder of Marta Correga Here is what the letter contains: o The letter is from Marta to her aunt, Ana Chinca o Marta has just been released from a fiveyear jail sentence She is writing to her aunt to express gratitude for all she's done and to apologize for her former behavior o After being released from prison, Marta found herself on the street with no money, clothes or home She wandered around the city looking for friends or relatives, but she couldn't find anyone that she used to know o Finally, she comes across a woman named Iris that she knew from before she was in prison o The woman feeds and clothes her/involves her in a prostitution ring A man named Slit Turk gets her a false identity card with the name of Marta Correga o Marta and Iris get into a big fight, and Marta leaves her for dead She leaves the house with bruises all over her arms and goes wandering about in the street She doesn't know where to go. She wanders to the Plaza Once and then remembers that Camilo Canegato lives there o Marta's aunt had done laundry for Camilo at one time, and she had given Camilo a picture of her niece This niece, Marta, had been working as a prostitute, and Camilo went to visit her every week until she got in trouble and went to jail o She remembered Camilo's address and went to find him at La Madrilena That's when everyone assumes she is Rosa and takes her in Vocabulary Part 4 cojo (p. 147): lame derramar (p. 148): to shed espantoso (p. 150): awful la predilección (p. 148): preference reparar (en) (p. 148): to repair Part 5 acertar (p. 158): to hit de golpe (> golpe) (p. 163): stroke/beat el pliego (p. 155): specifications rabioso (p. 159): rabid saltar (p. 163): to jump
