Don Quixote Volume 2, Chapter 50

Back to Don Quijote. It turns out that the torturing phantoms that night in Don Quijote's room were Doña Rodríguez's nosy roommate and the Duchess. Her roommate had secretly followed her and after seeing her enter Don Quijote's room had notified the Duchess. Eavesdropping on the other side of the door they heard the Duchess's unsightly ulcers being discussed and carried out their vengence.

The Duchess sends a messenger to Teresa, Sancho's wife. Although a page had already been dispatched to Sancho's wife with his letter and outfit in Chapter 46, another one is sent out in this chapter with the letter and outfit again, along with a letter from the Duchess and a coral necklace as a gift. Teresa and her daughter are flabbergasted by the news of Sancho's governorship and the gifts and letter sent by the Duchess telling how she is working on arranging a suitable marriage for Sanchica. The priest and Samson Carrasco are dumbfounded when Teresa shows this all to them. The page confirms it all for them, though they detect from his manner that all is not as it seems.
