Letter from Maria das Dores Florinal to Thomaz B. Phillips, in which she shares that she is happy that he has been so busy, because it means his business is going well. She says she is sewing trousers for the elections that are on the following day, and that she is going on a horse ride with Quinote the same day, in the house of Mr. Marcellino Correia. She jokingly says that she has news that Januaria will not like, and those are that the portrait of her brother-in-law has been very coveted. She sends regards to Januaria, D. Suzana and the children.
