Pregnancy (CW. cad.2. p.42)

A pregna-nt woman will faint immediately upon smelling incense in
the church, this people know when a woman or a young6 girl is pregnant.
Virginity --N. says taht virginity is important. The cook in.the Sesp
lauch "fez um jasto" for marriage with a niece of JoSo Pombo. he found
that she was not 4 virgin and lefther five days later. This is the
system here. Hemebers several cases. Wheh a woman is not virgin then
she should tell the man so- they may "amasiar" When she is not, then
they amasia and later perhaps he willmarry her. Some few will even
marry her-if she tells. One case two years ago, the groom beat his
wife, left her and returned after 5 months but "he lost respect for
her". Both Mo er-i and Chiquinha kwho lives in house of Caetano) are
examples, of brides who were left by their husband as soon as they were
discovered not to be virgins. Both cases happened in last year.
Dona Ana, wife of Nhunduca said that Morena had "a fine wedding"
with gloves. he' explained that people always said "w-ien there is a
wedding with gloves, then bride is not virgin". Morena's marriage,
lasted one week and then her husband (cook aboard besp) launch left
her. 'he went to live with a locdl family. Her mode of income is Lost
doubtful and precarious at ,resernt.

Nhunduca named rive women as "raprligas", i.e. Zuleida, Rosa, l.knria
N obre, i.Iria Pombo and Raimunds Dis., They are not like the women
in telem in the zonk", Lhunduca Explained; they do not\acce-t money
fromni-nyone. They nave a. friend" with whom -they syT-ipathize and he
can come each night, ne brings a present, sometimes he gives her &
present of money but never pay. "One has to court them", he says. Es.ch
one of them has a vay of making a living by washing, by gardening,
etc. If one went with ten cruzeiros as in Belem, they would call the
"Delegado". They generally have a new friend each month and so and
"they are go,'d to the young men". When Nhunduca was a youngster of
15(about 1)25) there was a house in which 10 women lived and song the-
se one mioht pay. They lived in four rooms, the house was known as "!a-
sa do Velho de Perna torts", by the name of owner who had died. The
house wa-s know for wild drunken parties and it was there Ii.urnduca caught
"mula" (syphlis), suffered for 5 years.
