(The Summary of “El Filibusterismo”)
On the last day of December, the Governor-General and his advisers, together with some friars, are taking a rest in Los Baños. After the game of cards, the Governor-General asks his advisers' opinion about the students' proposal to put up a self-sufficient Spanish academy. There is a disagreement of opinions, so no decision is made. Afterwards, the Governor-General orders the release of Tata Selo, who has been arrested by the Guardia Civil in place of his son, Cabesang Tales.
