Excerpt

da emigração, dos episodios do cerco do Porto, da fome, da peste e da guerra, triplice calamidade que conhecêra de perto, das batalhas em que havia entrado, da bravura do seu amo, e finalmente do Imperador, por quem o mutilado veterano professava um enthusiasmo quasi supersticioso, e a cujo vulto a sua narrativa imaginosa dava um aspecto epico e sobrenatural.

As crianças não se fartavam de interrogar aquella testemunha presencial de tantos feitos heroicos.

E assim eram neutralisadas as doutrinas dos pedagogos eruditos, encarregados da educação dos filhos de D. Luiz, e estes iam crescendo affeiçoados aos principios liberaes, que amavam de instincto, antes de os amarem de reflexão.

Mas dias de maior provação estavam reservados para esta familia.

A munificencia que o senhor da Casa Mourisca mantivera no voluntario desterro, a que se condemnou, obrigára-o a enormes e perigosos sacrificios.

D. Lui
