THE MOTHER

Two or three people, hearing sounds of a quarrel in the patio, came out of their rooms and listened.
" It's the new lodger," said a woman. "She's having a row with the porter who brought her things."
It was a tenement house of two storeys, built round a patio, in a back street of La Macarena, which is the roughest quarter in Seville. The rooms were let to working men and the small functionaries with whom Spain is overrun, postmen, policemen, or tram-conductors, and the place swarmed with children. There were twenty families there. They squabbled and made it up; they chattered their heads off; they helped one another when help was needed; for the Andalusians are good-natured people, and on the whole they got on well enough together. One room had been for some time unlet. A woman had taken it that morning, and an hour later had brought her bits and pieces, carrying as much as she could herself, a gallego-the Galicians are the general porters of Spain-laden with the rest.
But the quarrel was growing more violent, and the two women above, on the first floor, anxious not to miss a word, leant over the balcony.
They heard the newcomer's shrill voice raised in a torrent of abuse and the man's sullen interjections. The two women nudged one another.
" I shan't go till you pay me," he kept on saying.
" But I've paid you already. You said you'd do it for three reales."
" Neverl You promised me four."
They were haggling over rather less than twopence halfpenny.
