Love letter from Maria do Espírito Santo to Francisco de São Joaquim, friar.

The author gives some news to her lover, telling him also about the salvation of souls through prayer.

Maria do Espírito Santo claimed to be haunted by the demon and was submitted to an exorcism more than once. During one of these supernatural episodes she was assisted by the friar Francisco de São Joaquim Bom Sucesso, who spend the nights with her, at her request. Maria do Espírito Santo was arrested and, while in prison, gave birth to a boy. She was condemned to being publicly whipped and sent to exile for four years, among other penances.
