CHAPTER II - Tea party in Tlacolula

`Horrible, I am sure. I never went to a bull-fight in Mexico. Only in Spain, where there is wonderful colour. Did you ever try a bull-fight, Major?'
`Yes, I have been several times.'
`You have! Then you know all about it. And how are you liking Mexico, Mrs Leslie?'
`Not much,' said Kate. `It strikes me as evil.'
`It does! It does!' said Mrs Norris. 'Ah, if you had known it before! Mexico before the revolution! It was different then. What is the latest news, Major?'
`About the same,' said the Major. `There is a rumour that the new President will be turned down by the army, a few days before he comes into office. But you never know.'
`I think it would be a great shame not to let him have a try,' put in Owen hotly. `He seems a sincere man, and just because he is honestly a Labour man, they want to shut him out.'
'Ah, my dear Mr Rhys, they all talk so nobly beforehand. If only their deeds followed their words, Mexico would be heaven on earth.'
`Instead of hell on earth,' snapped the judge.
A young man and his wife, also Americans, were introduced
as Mr and Mrs Henry. The young man was fresh and lively. `We were talking about the new President,' said Mrs. Norris.

`Why, did you ever hear of such a thing!' said Mrs. Norris. 'Hosanna! Hosanna! Hosanna! To the new Labour President.
I think it's rich,' said Henry.
The judge stamped his stick on the ground in a speechless access of irritability.
`They pasted on my luggage,' said the Major, `when I came through Vera Cruz: La degenerada media clasa, Sera regenerada, por mi, Monte.r. The degenerate middle class shall be regenerated by me, Montes.'
'Poor Montes!' said Kate. `He seems to have got his work cut out.'
`He has indeedl' said Mrs Norris. `Poor man, I wish he
