Suicidio tC. p.156)

O unico caso que M.Profeta se lembra de suicidio fol de uma moga
chamada Augusta que era "noiva" do Cleto Barreto (irrao de D.Inacia).
Como soube por amiras que ele tumbem estava noivo de outro, Inacia
Coelho cor quem mais tardo se casou, ela depois da missa de domingo,
de ter confessado e cormungado, conversou com o noivo e em frende dele,
como ele duvidasse, bebeu um copo de verde Paris. Morreu logo, Diz
que o noivo chorou muito.
