Description

Extracto: ... 25, 14. deshollinador, a long-handled scraper used by chimney sweeps to dislodge the soot. 25, 16, 17.

Spanish proper names when written in full regularly include the family name on both father's and mother's side. Thus D. Eugenio's father was a Zuniga, his mother a Ponce de Leon. Women, when they marry, usually retain their own family name, adding the husband's with the copulative de; widows sign their own names, usually with the addition viuda de. Thus Juana Suarez on her marriage to a Fernandez becomes Suarez de Fernandez; as a widow, she is Juana Suarez viuda de Fernandez. 26, 19. desembozarse. The Spaniard usually wears his capa (cape or cloak) wrapped closely about the neck and the lower part of the face; this is embozarse (59, 13). Desembozarse is to throw back the cloak and leave the face exposed. Compare embozo, 46, 28. 26, 19. vidose; from ver. "Han escrito buenos autores, y aun suele decir el vulgo, en el preterito perfecto, yo vide, el vido, formas desterradas ya del buen lenguaje" (Gramatica de la Lengua Castellana, por La Real Academia Espanola, ed. 1890, p. 139, note). 26, 25. quirotecas.
