The next day, Pirrone finds his sister Sarina in tears in the kitchen, and gets her to admit that her daughter Angelina whom Pirrone mentally compares to the beautiful Angelica, and finds wanting is pregnant out of wedlock. The skins in particular are related to traditional beliefs in the sub-Saharan Africa, where they are worn by royals and tribal chiefs. The Prince decides to walk home, alone with his thoughts.
