Manuel and Chatel are aroused.

Paula tells a factual lie about Bernardim, but remains truthful to her own feelings. And when all seems lost a relative arrives unexpectedly from abroad with qlmeida news that, after all, puella was not born a slave but is a girl of respectable parents who is free, therefore, to marry her love-sick admirer.
