Patria tells us about the time Margarita, one of their father’s daughters outside marriage, came to their door offering to help in the cause. She does so by passing on a note to Patria from Mate in jail, asking for medicine and food. Margarita had received the note from her mother’s cousin, who acts as middle man. Patria prepares a package of supplies for her sisters and then passes this on to that cousin, who passes it on to the sisters in jail. In this way, one of the outcast sisters, who, by the way, has adopted the last name of “Mirabar” because she is proud of it, helps the Mirabar sisters in the revolution.
