Resultado: un escadrón de caballería sai a despexar a calle, e nos vamos direitos á prevención.
      "Well, then I'm walking down the street in a hurry: I trip on a young lady's train; I fall, she falls; her father, which is by her side, strikes me some blows with his cane; a companion of mine, who also can't stand these fashions, comes to defend me; I stand up and help him; the girl shouts; the guards come; we don't acknowledge them; people come at the run to see what's going, and they repeat what we did; they fall ones on top of the others, and there is confusion and laments and shouts, and it seems that the street is full with demons who are pulling out the flagstones to get to hell. Result: a cavalry squadron comes to clear the street, and we go direct to jail."
