Ah hah, I was wondering about the family, what with them being all literate and all, yet poor. But it turns out that they are of reduced circumstances, since that's always more romantic! (And useful, in this case!)
People judged by a government because of their religion? Say it ain't so! (Odd how the very oldest things still remain relevant, eh?)
Well, nice to know that Safie loves Felix for all the right reasons: ie, he's a good Christian boy! Yeah yeah, reading this particular part is a bit... odd in the modern day.
Anyhow, so ends the story-within-a-story-within-a-story section of the book! Definitely a bit weird though to read nowadays...
