Pasimulá.


  Manang isang hapong dinalao ang buhay
niyaong magcaumpoc na lungcot at lumbay,
sa isang uupan aco'y, nagulaylay
at pinaguauari itong calagayan.

  Ualang ano ano'y, sumilang sa isip
yaong paglilibang sa _jarding_ mariquit
caya n~ga,t, sa lagay aco ay tumindig
hinanap ang simoy n~g han~ging malamig.

  At aquing tinun~go na cusang hinanap
ang pooc na tunay n~g tanang bulaclac
pagdating co roo'y, pinili co agad
ang lalong mariquit, at aquing pinitas.

  N~guni at nalooy, nalagas na tunay

napaui ang gandá, lumipas ang culay,
caya,t, ang puso co ay muling nalumbay.

  At saca inisip cung ano ang dahil

  Pinag-ugnay-ugnay yaring paquiramdam

  Dito co nabatid cung saan nagbuhat,

pagca,t, natanto co ang _fraileng_ dulin~gas

  At tuloy dinalao itong ala-ala

  Ang nangyaring ito'y siyang isusulit

Ang sumulat.




Puno nang salita.


  Cailan mang panahon ang casamaan
cung umiral ma'y sa sandali lamang
                              Aco.


  May isang mag-inang taga ibang bayan,
aquing nalimutan cung ano ang n~galan;
ang mag-inang ito'y, mahirap ang buhay,
baquit ulila na sa dapat magmahal.

  May loob sa Dios ang babayeng anac
may impoc na puri baga ma,t, mahirap
maganda ang asal, matamis man~gusap
sino mang tumin~gi'y malulugod agad.

  Ang caniyang ina,y lubha ring mabait
di saquim sa pilac, totoong malinis,
sa arao at gabi'y ualang ini-isip
cung hindi ang gutom canilang mapatid.

  Sa isang paraang mabuti,t, mahusay,
at hindi naghan~gad n~g anomang yaman,
cung di yaong anac malinis matanao
sa harap n~g mundo,t, hangang calan~gitan.

  Dapua,t, niyaon n~ga'y may isang dumating
sa canilang bayan isang _fraileng_ saquim;
at doo'y nagcura nan~garal na tambing
n~g utos n~g Dios na dapat ganapin.

  Diua ay dinalao n~g gauang pagsinta
ang puso at loob n~g nasabing cura,
caya,t, monaguillo'y, tinauag pagdaca,t,
agad pinahanap n~g isang dalaga.

  Aniya'y, libutin ang loob n~g bayan
at iyong sabihin sa m~ga magulang
na may m~ga anac na dalagang tunay
na sa arao arao'y, pasa sa simbahan.

  At huag lilimuting sila ay sasaglit
matapos magsimba sa convento'y, manhic
at ito'y, bilin co siyang isusulit
sapagca,t, utos n~ga: n~g Dios sa lan~git.

  Itong monaguillo'y, agad n~g sumagot:
na caniyang tutupdin sa among na utos,
caya n~ga,t, nalis na at cusang naglibot
at sa bahay bahay ay manhic manaog.

  Palibhasa n~gani ay utos n~g cura.
lahat n~g magulang tumupad pagdaca
at sa arao arao ay nan~gagsisimba,t,
anac na dalaga'y, canilang casama.

  Pangagaling pa n~ga doon sa Simbahan
sa convento nama'y man~gagtutuluyan:
sasalubong dito ang _among_ sa bayan
at magpapahalic sa lahat n~g camay.

  Dumating ang arao sa gayon n~g gayon,
dalauang mag-ina'y, piniguil n~g _among_,
aniya'y: Mag-antay at may itatanong
sa iniyong dalaua'y, tila nauucol.

  N~g mapag-iuan na niyaong caramihan
dalauang mag-inang piniguil na tunay
ang pag-uusisa dito na minulan
n~g _guinoong curang_ may asal halimao.

  Aniya'y: ¿Ano ba iniyong paghahanap,
saan quinucuha cailan~gang lahat?
ang sagot n~g ina:--Ang aquin pong anac
tahiing damit sa bahay natangap.

  Ang tugon n~g cura: anac mo'y, magandá
ang bagay sa caniya'y, tauaguing _maestra_,
aco ang bahala ilalacad siya,t,
huag n~g manahi magpacailan pa.

  Ang ina'y, sumagot, sa ganitong turing;
--Salamat po _among_ sa iyong pagtin~gin,
cahimanauari icao po'y, gantihin
n~g Dios sa lan~git sa gauang magaling.

  Madali,t, salita dumating ang arao
ualang ano ano'y, tumangap n~g dalao,
n~g isang _sacristan_, mag-inang tinuran
sila'y, tinatauag n~g _among_ sa bayan.

  Ang mag-inang ito'y, umayo,t, sumama
sa doroong tauong alila n~g cura,
ualang guni guni, ualang ala-ala
cung di ang pan~gacong maguiguing _maestra_.

  N~g sila'y, dumating sa harap n~g _among_
at nacahalic na sa camay n~g _ungoy_,
ang uica n~g cura'y: Tinangap co n~gayon
ang _nombramiento_ na aquing nilayon.

  Caya n~ga at icao uica sa dalagá
magbuhat na n~gayo'y, tunay n~g maestra,
dito sa bayan mo, at iiuan mo na
yaong pananahi na ualang halagá.

  Tandaan mo lamang itong aquing bilin
na sa arao arao huag lilimutin,
ang lahat n~g bata ay iyong dadalhin
dito sa _Convento,t,_ iharap sa aquin.

  Sagot n~g _maestra'y_: Aquing tatandaan
ang tanang bilin po n~g _among_ sa bayan,
pagcasabi nito, sila'y, nagpaalam
ang toua n~g ina'y, ualang macapantay.

  Sa pagca,t, di alam ang nasa sa loob
n~g curang sinambit na nagmamaayos,
ang acala niya'y ang gayon ay taos
sa puso at dibdib n~g lilo't balaquiot.

  Magbuhat na niyaon, sa gabi at arao
_Maguinoong_ cura'y laguing dumadalao,
sa mag-inang ito't ang dinadahilan
ay, ang pan~gan~garal n~g mabuting asal.

  N~guni at datapua't manang isang hapon
ualang ano ano'y nagsulit ang _among_
aniya,y: Tingnan mo, sa ina ang tucoy,
ang ninanasa co at dinguin mo n~gayon.

  Malaqui ang aquing dalang pagmamahal
sa anac mong iyan at magandang asal,
caya't yamang cayo'y ulila n~g tunay
sa aquin ay cayo,y mabuting pumisan.

  Talastas mo namang maigui ang capit
n~g sino mang tauong sa cura'y sumanib
gayon din sa pilac ualang isusulit
at sino mang _frayle'y_ sagana at sicsic.

  Hindi ca daramdam n~g ano mang hirap
igagalang ca pa n~g capua mong lahat,
balana'y pupuga'y sa iyo't tatauag
_macapangyarihan, papel ay malapad_.

  Ang tugon n~g ina'y: Pangit pong malasin
sa mata n~g lahat cung ito'y asalin,
caya po't iurong ang nais na linsil
ualang masasapit ano mang marating.

  Mabuti pa po n~gang tauaguing mahirap,
marumi ang damit, sa dan~gal ay salat,
huag n~g maturan na aco'y may anac
babaye n~g cura ... ¡Dios co ay huag!

  Sumagot ang cura sa ganitong sulit,
aniya'y: Babaye, icao ay mag-isip,
dapat acalain na cung aquing ibig,
ni ang _gobernador_ di maiaalis.

  Pag nagcataon pa'y aco'y aayunan
balang sabihin co'y mangyayaring tunay,
caya't isipin mo itong isinaysay,
bucas macalaua'y huag pagsisihan.

  Tugon n~g babaye: icao po'y bahala
balang ibiguin mo'y mangyayaring paua;
sa ninanasa po'y ualang magagaua
pagca't sinun~galing ang balat n~g lupa.

  Malaqui mang lubha ang capangyarihan
nino mang _frayleng_ magcura sa bayan,
ualang masasapit, cung pagpipilitang
ilapat sa aquin ang pan~git na asal.

  Itong sinabi co'y itanim sa isip
at pagtitibayin buhay ma'y maamis,
¡di co acalaing mag asal bulisic,
ang isang _ministro n~g Dios_ sa lan~git!

  Nang ito'y marinig n~g curang causap
sa pagcaupo n~ga'y tumindig caagad,
at saca uinicang:--¡Tandaan mong lahat,
darating ang arao siyang pagbabayad!

  Tuloy n~g nanaog n~g ualang paalam
ang sucab na tauong may asal halimao,
magbuhat na niyaon sa gabi at arao
ualang iniisip cung di _cahayupan_.

  Caya't sa _convento_ n~g siya'y dumating
yaong _monaguillo'y_ tinauag na tambing
aniya'y: Susundin, itong ibibilin,
gagauin mo agad, huag lilimutin.

  Na mamayang gabi'y sunuguin ang bahay
dalauang mag-inang quilala mo naman:
¿Bahay n~g _maestra_? sagot n~g _sacristan_,
oo, ang uinica n~g cura sa bayan.

--Aquin pong susundin ang mahal na utos,
pagsunod na ito'y mapait sa loob,
pagca't yaring puso'y uari'y natatacot
sa sising darating n~g tunay na Dios.

  Ang sagot n~g cura: Huag ca n~gang balio
ibig mo pa yata'y man~guna sa aquin,
narito ang UALONG PISO at tangapin,
huag cang main~gay at aco ay sundin.

  Tinangap ang pilac n~g saquim sa yaman
nag ualang bahala sa lahat n~g bagay,
caya't ang guinaua'y naghanda n~g tunay
tanang gagamiting panunog n~g bahay.

  At pagcagabi n~ga lubha n~g tahimic,
tinun~go ang daan at cusang lumapit
sa tinitirahang bahay na maliit
dalauang mag-ina na cahapis hapis.

  Saca sinusuhan ang apat na suloc,
ano pa't sa apoy sila ay mabalot,
ang batang babaye'y sa laqui n~g tacot
taas n~g bintana'y nilucso't nilusob.

  Naiuan ang inang natupoc sa apoy
matandang babayeng napag-isa doon,
caya n~ga't ang anac hindi napatuloy
pag layo't pag alis, piguil n~g panaghoy.

  Sa sama n~g loob siya'y napahimpil
sa tabi n~g isang malapit na dinding,
n~g calapit bahay, na hindi dinating
n~g nin~gas n~g apoy, dahil n~g hilahil.

  Sa lagay-na ito'y bigla siyang guinilic
n~g dalauang tauong di niya nabatid,
at siya'y dinala at cusang piniit
doon sa _conventong_ tirahan n~g ganid.

  Sumunod na arao, ¡ano ang gagauin!
siya'y naroon na dapat n~g silain,
gayong cahirapang, palad ay alipin
n~g capua palad, na ualang cahambing.

  Ang hunhang na cura'y siya'y nilapitan
sa paghihimutoc siya'y niligauan,
¡ang _aspid_ na loob hindi na gumalang
sa luha n~g batang ulila n~g tunay!

  Aniya'y: Masdan mo sinapit dinating
n~g calagayan mong aayao sa aquin,
pag di pa pumayag sa aquing pag guilio
mapapahamac ca di aco titiguil.

  Ang sagot n~g bata: Aco ma'y mamatay,
ay hindi papayag sa masamang daan;
ang tugon n~g cura: Iyong pag-isipan,
sa cuartong ito'y quita'y babalican.

  Magbuhat na niyaon ang cahapis hapis
na inaalipin n~g madlang hinagpis,
sa arao at gabi'y nataas sa lan~git
caniyang panaghoy na sanhi n~g saquit.

  Caya't n~g magbalic ang curang ulupong
ang ulilang bata'y hindi nahinahon;
agad n~g guinamit ang ganitong tanong:
¿Inisip mo na ba? ¿at ano ang tugon?

  Sumagot ang bata: Icao po'y mahabag
sa abang lagay cong busabos n~g hirap,
caya n~ga't dinguin mo itong paquiusap
sa aquing confesor aco ay haharap.

  Confesor na ito'y isa n~gang _clérigo_
may tunay na loob at mabuting tauo,
ito ang marapat tauaguing _ministro_
n~g Dios sa lan~git lubhang masaclolo.

  Ang tugon n~g cura sa gayong pamanhic:
Hindi mangyayari cahit mo ipilit,
at hangang hindi ca na sagot sa sulit
sagot na paayong aquing ninanais.

  Sa sama n~g loob n~g batang na iyac
tumugon n~g uicang lubhang mabanayad;
Oo na po _among_ mamaya tutupad
caya't magbalic po at aco'y pápayag.

  Sa bagay na ito'y ang curang bulisic
sumagot n~g: Oo't pagdaca'y nalis;
guinaua n~g bata'y tumaanang pilit
na di namalayan nino mang casanib.

  Pagdaca'y tinun~go at cusang hinanap
caniyang confesor na may puring hauac,
pagcaquita niya'y agad n~g tumauag,
may luha sa mata't siya'y napalin~gap.

  Ang sagot sa caniya: Huag n~g magbalic
sa _coventong_ yaon n~g curang bulisic,
aco ang bahalang sa lahat umusig
at mananagot pa sa caniyang nais.

  Caya n~ga't nangyari'y sabihin sa aquin
n~g aquing matanto't siya ay usiguin;
Cung gayon po'y tingnan, ang sa batang turing
aquing dinaanan n~gayo'y sasalitin.

  Aco po'y ulila sa guilio na ama
at nalabing toua co'y pag-lin~gap ni ina,
aming pagcabuhay tumangap toui na
n~g tahiing damit mahal man ó mura.

  N~guni't isang arao cami'y pinatauag
n~g curaug hindi na natutong mahabag,
at tuloy sinabing iuan co ay dapat
yaong pananahing aquing paghahanap.

  Acala ni ina'y mabuti ang nais,
n~g curang sinabing, sa ami'y nagsulit,
na aco'y gagaouing _maestra_ sa pilit
caya't ang salamat siyang ipinalit.

  Dumating ang arao n~g capan~gacuan
n~g cura sa aquing _titulong_ sinaysay,
caya po't nangyaring _nagmaestrang_ tunay
dito po sa guilio at nilac-hang bayan.

  N~guni't isang hapon ang cura ay nanhic
sa amin pong bahay pagdalao ang nais,
ualang ano ano cay ina'y nagsulit
n~g lubhang mahalay tungcol sa pag-ibig.

  Sumagot si inang ano mang sapitin
hindi siya papayag sa bagay na turing,
sa lagay na ito'y ang lilo at soail,
umalis na bigla't anaquin ay haling.

  Pagcagabi n~ga po'y sinunog ang bahay
niyaong _monaguillo_ na caniyang utusan,
doon po'y si ina ¡Dios co'y namatay!
natupoc sa apoy na dulot n~g hunghang.

  Sa bagay pong ito'y, aco'y, naninimdim
at sa isang suloc aco'y, napahimpil,
ualang ano ano'y, lumapit sa aquin
dalauang lalaquing may suot na itim.

  At aco'y, dinala sa _conventong_ tunay
ipinasoc tuloy sa cuartong nalaan,
at n~g naroon na pinto ay sinarhan
at aco'y piniit n~g ualang dahilan.

  Pagca umaga po'y lumapit sa aquin
ang curang doroon, nagsulit na tambing,
aniya,y: Tignan mo, sinapit dinating
n~g lilong ina mong palalong magturing.

  Sa paghihinagpis aco'y niligauan
ang luha n~g puso,y di man iguinalang ...
pag ligao na yao'y inululang tunay
saca nilangcapan n~g balang mahalay.

  Caya po,t, sagot co siya ay magbalic
at aco'y papayag sa ninasang lihis,
saca n~ga n~g siya, doon ay umalis
aco namang ito'y nagtanan n~gang pilit.

  Caya po narito iyong saclolohan
sa n~galan n~g Dios, huag pabayaan:
sa lagay cong ito'y maaua pong tunay
at yaong _justicia_ ang hin~gi co lamang.

  Ang sagot n~ga nitong caniyang confesor
justicia, justicia, sa iyo'y aampon,
caya't omoui ca, aco'y paroroon,
cung hanapin ca pa n~g curang ulupong.

  Paroon sa bahay n~g iyong magulang
tiahin ó lelang ó caya pininsan,
saca tumahimic sa sariling lagay
aco ang bahala sa lahat n~g bagay.

  Nang ito'y matanto n~g batang causap
ligalíg na loob tumahimic agad,
at tuloy omoui na cusang hinanap
ang bahay n~g aleng labing camag-anac.

  N~guni't hindi pa lumilipas halos
ang arao na yaon, balita'y sumabog
siya'y hinahanap n~g curang may poot
dahil sa nag-asal n~g uala sa, ayos.

  Caya n~ga't sa bahay n~g aleng tinuran
ay doon inabot n~g cura't sacristan,
ang batang babayeng ulila sa layao,
capos sa ligaya at sa toua'y uhao.

  Nang siya'y maquita n~g curang bulisic
pagdaca'y uinicang; ¡oh babaying ganid!
acala mo yata aco'y palulupig
sa isang paris mong licó ang matouid.

  Capag hindi ca pa sumama sa aquin
asahan mo na n~ga na may sasapitin
ang lagay mong iyan na calaguimlaguim,
marahil hindi mo maubos tayahin.

  Hangang nagsusulit ang curang halimao,
ang batang babaye'y nag-utos na tunay
n~g palihim pa n~ga confesor tauagan
sa caniyang bahay siya'y saclolohan.

  Caya n~ga't nag-abot ang dalauang ito
sa bahay n~g bata, _cura_ at clérigo,
dito na minulan yaong pagtatalo
tungcol sa gagauin n~g tunay na tauo.

  Ang uica n~g cura, sa bata ang tin~gin
icao ay sumamang madali sa aquin,
dito na tumugón clérigong mahinhin
aniya'y turan mo cung ano ang dahil.

--Siya'y nagtaanan sa aquin convento
nilibac ang utos _Santo sacrificio_,
caya n~ga at n~gayon aco'y naparito
upang parusahan sa dahil na ito.

  Sagot n~g clérigo'y icao ay tumahan
huag cang humanap n~g lilong dahilan,
cung caya ang bata sa iyo'y nagtanan
dahil sa ang ibig puri ay in~gatan.

  Sapagca't icao n~ga'y di dapat tauaguing
ministro n~g Dios, lubhang maauain,
dahil sa asal mo'y totoong napuing
sa hatol n~g lan~git na ualang cahambing.

  Sinisira mo n~ga bilin n~g _cánones_
nilalabág mo pa sampuo pa n~g _leyes_,
¿hindi mo ba tantong doo'y nacatitic
na baual sa clero ang asal bulisic?

  ¿Hindi mo ba alám ang dapat asalin
n~g sino mang fraile, anomang marating?
¿di ba sa _breviario_ may tunay na bilin
sa clero'y ang linis, ang dapat gamitin?

  Cung ito'y alam mo ¿baquit mo hinamac
ang mahal na bilin n~g leyes na lahat,
sanhi sa nais mo na nasa n~g oslac?
hayop ang sa iyo'y dapat na itauag.

  Tumugon ang curang may impoc na galit
tiguil sinun~galing, icao ang bulisic
marunong sa lahat, pati pa n~g lan~git
ibig pang maabot n~g haling na isip.

  Sumagot sa gayon, doroong clérigo
n~g uicang mamaya magquiquita tayo,
tutun~go sa _Juez_ at isusumbong co
ang _causa criminal_ na iniimpoc mo.

  Alam cong icao n~ga't di ibang tunay
siyang nagpasunog sa caniyang bahay,
doon n~ga rin naman tupóc na namatay
ang ina n~g batang ualang casalanan.

  Pagcauica nito'y umalis na agad
yaong Juzgado ang siyang hinanap,
sa bagay na ito'y ang cura'y nasindac
caya't natiguilan sa sandaling oras.

  Mapamayamaya dumating ang _juez_
clérigo'y casama't sa bahay pumanhic,
dito n~ga inabot ang curang bulisic
na hinihimuyot ang bata sa lihis.

  Pagpasoc n~g _juez_ doon sa pintuan
pagdaca'y nagsulit sa cura sa bayan,
aniya'y sumama sa aquin n~ga icao
sa n~galan n~g _ley_ bilango cang tunay.

  Ang tugón n~g cura di cana nan~ganib
na aco'y bilango sa aqui'y isulit,
di mo ba tantong ang gayon ay lihis
aco'y cahalili n~g Dios sa lan~git.

  ¿Hindi baga alam may capangyarihan
ang sino mang fraileng magcura sa bayan,
na gobierno't _leyes_ dapat na gumalang
ang gayon ay hatol n~g sangcalan~gitan?

  Sumagot ang _juez_ n~g sagot matigás
aniya'y itiguil ang bibig mo oslac,
acala mo yata aco'y nagugulat
sa isang paris mong, catulad ay ahas.

  Papa man sa Roma'y pipiiting co rin
cung siya'y suminsay sa _leyes_ na bilin,
pagtupad na ito ay utos sa aquin
n~g lan~git at lupa; ¡oh! ¡tauong haling!

  Icao po'y magsulit sabi sa clérigo
ang tanang nangyari'y n~g matalastas co,
clérigo'y tumugón ang batang narito
ang lalong mabuting magsabi sa iyo.

  Dito na minulan n~g batang babaye
ang lahat n~g bagay, at tanang nangyari,
sa bagay na itó'y ang cura'y nagsabi
na yao'y di tunay lilong pamarali.

  At ang sinabi pang parang idinugtong
iyan ay bun~ga n~ga ng isip na pusong,
naritong clérigo na may nilalayong
mahalay sa bata ... ¡oh asal ulupong!

  Clérigo'y sumagot sa ganitong turing
¡oh fraileng halimao, tauong sinun~galing!
cung ano ang puti n~g hábitong angquin
sa dugó mo naman ay siyang ca-itim.

  ¿Nahiga ca na ba't humilig na cusa
sa piling na ualang caparis na sama?
¿di na ba naumid ang lilo mong dila
sa halay n~g sulit na ualang camuc-ha?

  ¿N~gayon ba't sala mo'y mapaparusahan
ang ibig mo naman aco ay idamay?
sa sama mong quilic, pati n~g catouiran
ibig mong bulaguin ... ¡mahalay na asal!

  Cung dito'y manaog ang tunay na Dios
at cusang masilip ang asal mong hayop,
sa iyo'y icacapit, sa laqui n~g poot
bagsic n~g parusang ualang maca ayos.

  Sa bagay na ito'y ang doroong _juez_
sa curang may sala ay cusang lumapit,
at saca nag-uica n~g ganitong sulit
dumating ang oras, maghari ang matouid.

  Sa hiya n~g cura ay nagpacamatay
sa oras na yaong hindi namalayan,
nino mang doroon cundi napaquingan
ang putoc n~g isang revolver na taglay.

  Caya't n~g maquitang siya ay patay na
clérigo'y lumapit sa batang dalaga,
aniya'y masdan mo't tunay natupad na

Creating the works from public domain print editions means that no
one owns a United States copyright in these works, so the Foundation
(and you!) can copy and distribute it in the United States without
permission and without paying copyright royalties.  Special rules,
set forth in the General Terms of Use part of this license, apply to
copying and distributing Project Gutenberg-tm electronic works to
protect the PROJECT GUTENBERG-tm concept and trademark.  Project
Gutenberg is a registered trademark, and may not be used if you
charge for the eBooks, unless you receive specific permission.  If you
do not charge anything for copies of this eBook, complying with the
rules is very easy.  You may use this eBook for nearly any purpose
such as creation of derivative works, reports, performances and
research.  They may be modified and printed and given away--you may do
practically ANYTHING with public domain eBooks.  Redistribution is
subject to the trademark license, especially commercial
redistribution.

     does not agree to the terms of the full Project Gutenberg-tm
     License.  You must require such a user to return or
     destroy all copies of the works possessed in a physical medium
     and discontinue all use of and all access to other copies of
     Project Gutenberg-tm works.

- You provide, in accordance with paragraph 1.F.3, a full refund of any
     money paid for a work or a replacement copy, if a defect in the

both the Project Gutenberg Literary Archive Foundation and Michael
Hart, the owner of the Project Gutenberg-tm trademark.  Contact the
Foundation as set forth in Section 3 below.

1.F.

1.F.1.  Project Gutenberg volunteers and employees expend considerable
effort to identify, do copyright research on, transcribe and proofread
public domain works in creating the Project Gutenberg-tm
collection.  Despite these efforts, Project Gutenberg-tm electronic
works, and the medium on which they may be stored, may contain
"Defects," such as, but not limited to, incomplete, inaccurate or
corrupt data, transcription errors, a copyright or other intellectual
property infringement, a defective or damaged disk or other medium, a
computer virus, or computer codes that damage or cannot be read by
your equipment.

1.F.2.  LIMITED WARRANTY, DISCLAIMER OF DAMAGES - Except for the "Right
of Replacement or Refund" described in paragraph 1.F.3, the Project
Gutenberg Literary Archive Foundation, the owner of the Project
Gutenberg-tm trademark, and any other party distributing a Project
Gutenberg-tm electronic work under this agreement, disclaim all
liability to you for damages, costs and expenses, including legal
fees.  YOU AGREE THAT YOU HAVE NO REMEDIES FOR NEGLIGENCE, STRICT
LIABILITY, BREACH OF WARRANTY OR BREACH OF CONTRACT EXCEPT THOSE
PROVIDED IN PARAGRAPH F3.  YOU AGREE THAT THE FOUNDATION, THE
TRADEMARK OWNER, AND ANY DISTRIBUTOR UNDER THIS AGREEMENT WILL NOT BE
LIABLE TO YOU FOR ACTUAL, DIRECT, INDIRECT, CONSEQUENTIAL, PUNITIVE OR
INCIDENTAL DAMAGES EVEN IF YOU GIVE NOTICE OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH
DAMAGE.

1.F.3.  LIMITED RIGHT OF REPLACEMENT OR REFUND - If you discover a
defect in this electronic work within 90 days of receiving it, you can
receive a refund of the money (if any) you paid for it by sending a
written explanation to the person you received the work from.  If you
received the work on a physical medium, you must return the medium with
your written explanation.  The person or entity that provided you with
the defective work may elect to provide a replacement copy in lieu of a
refund.  If you received the work electronically, the person or entity
providing it to you may choose to give you a second opportunity to
receive the work electronically in lieu of a refund.  If the second copy
is also defective, you may demand a refund in writing without further
opportunities to fix the problem.

1.F.4.  Except for the limited right of replacement or refund set forth
in paragraph 1.F.3, this work is provided to you 'AS-IS', WITH NO OTHER
WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO

1.F.5.  Some states do not allow disclaimers of certain implied
warranties or the exclusion or limitation of certain types of damages.
If any disclaimer or limitation set forth in this agreement violates the
law of the state applicable to this agreement, the agreement shall be
interpreted to make the maximum disclaimer or limitation permitted by
the applicable state law.  The invalidity or unenforceability of any
provision of this agreement shall not void the remaining provisions.

1.F.6.  INDEMNITY - You agree to indemnify and hold the Foundation, the
trademark owner, any agent or employee of the Foundation, anyone
providing copies of Project Gutenberg-tm electronic works in accordance
with this agreement, and any volunteers associated with the production,
promotion and distribution of Project Gutenberg-tm electronic works,
harmless from all liability, costs and expenses, including legal fees,
that arise directly or indirectly from any of the following which you do
or cause to occur: (a) distribution of this or any Project Gutenberg-tm
work, (b) alteration, modification, or additions or deletions to any
Project Gutenberg-tm work, and (c) any Defect you cause.


Section  2.  Information about the Mission of Project Gutenberg-tm

Project Gutenberg-tm is synonymous with the free distribution of
electronic works in formats readable by the widest variety of computers
including obsolete, old, middle-aged and new computers.  It exists
because of the efforts of hundreds of volunteers and donations from
people in all walks of life.

Volunteers and financial support to provide volunteers with the
assistance they need, is critical to reaching Project Gutenberg-tm's
goals and ensuring that the Project Gutenberg-tm collection will
remain freely available for generations to come.  In 2001, the Project
Gutenberg Literary Archive Foundation was created to provide a secure
and permanent future for Project Gutenberg-tm and future generations.
To learn more about the Project Gutenberg Literary Archive Foundation
and how your efforts and donations can help, see Sections 3 and 4
and the Foundation web page at https://www.pglaf.org.

Section 4.  Information about Donations to the Project Gutenberg
Literary Archive Foundation

Project Gutenberg-tm depends upon and cannot survive without wide
spread public support and donations to carry out its mission of
increasing the number of public domain and licensed works that can be
freely distributed in machine readable form accessible by the widest
array of equipment including outdated equipment.  Many small donations
($1 to $5,000) are particularly important to maintaining tax exempt
status with the IRS.

The Foundation is committed to complying with the laws regulating
charities and charitable donations in all 50 states of the United
States.  Compliance requirements are not uniform and it takes a
considerable effort, much paperwork and many fees to meet and keep up
with these requirements.  We do not solicit donations in locations
where we have not received written confirmation of compliance.  To
SEND DONATIONS or determine the status of compliance for any
particular state visit https://pglaf.org

While we cannot and do not solicit contributions from states where we
have not met the solicitation requirements, we know of no prohibition
against accepting unsolicited donations from donors in such states who
approach us with offers to donate.

International donations are gratefully accepted, but we cannot make
any statements concerning tax treatment of donations received from
outside the United States.  U.S. laws alone swamp our small staff.

Please check the Project Gutenberg Web pages for current donation
methods and addresses.  Donations are accepted in a number of other
ways including including checks, online payments and credit card
donations.  To donate, please visit: https://pglaf.org/donate


Section 5.  General Information About Project Gutenberg-tm electronic
works.

Professor Michael S. Hart was the originator of the Project Gutenberg-tm
concept of a library of electronic works that could be freely shared
with anyone.  For thirty years, he produced and distributed Project
Gutenberg-tm eBooks with only a loose network of volunteer support.

Project Gutenberg-tm eBooks are often created from several printed
editions, all of which are confirmed as Public Domain in the U.S.
unless a copyright notice is included.  Thus, we do not necessarily
keep eBooks in compliance with any particular paper edition.

Most people start at our Web site which has the main PG search facility:

     https://www.gutenberg.org

This Web site includes information about Project Gutenberg-tm,
including how to make donations to the Project Gutenberg Literary
Archive Foundation, how to help produce our new eBooks, and how to
subscribe to our email newsletter to hear about new eBooks.
