filius, ii (hijo)

[image taken from Cambridge Latin web book]

The somnambulist read the note written in the first page. There were thirteen titles he read slowly to himself. He remembered all of them because of his good memory. The books and resources had been written by someone who was very fond of Latin language and culture. There were 5 lines marked with a star, maybe to indicate those as his/her favourite books
