Pérez Galdós, Benito
Misericordia Misericordia

The text followed in this translation has been the first edition, published in Madrid by the Casa Editorial Hernando in 1897. Many subsequent editions with the exception of the virtual reprint by Hernando in 1964, contain errors or omissions. There is one inconsistency in the first edition: at the close of chapter XXXIII there is a rapid exchange between Frasquito Ponte and Doña Paca. As it draws to a close, the reader (and Galdós?) loses track of which one is speaking, since the line "Oh madam, by the Blessed Virgin" is obviously meant to be spoken by Ponte. Yet as we calculate the alternation of speeches, the line falls to Doña Paca.
