CHAPTER II - Tea party in Tlacolula

might come in peacefully and put a strong hand on the country. But there's not much hope, I'm afraid.'

`Oh, but mayn't it be possible that he will change his views a little on coming into power?' said Mrs Norris. `So many Presidents have done so.'
`I should say very probable, if ever he gets into power,' said young Henry. `He'll have all his work cut out saving Socrates Tomas, he won't have much time left for saving Mexico.'

'Montes popular!' they all cried at once. `Why!' snapped the judge, `he's the most unpopular man in Mexico.'
