CHAPTER II - Tea party in Tlacolula

Museum, and I must take off my hat to their national monuments. Imagine it: those dirty stones! I laughed at them and jammed my hat on tighter and walked out. They are really only monkeys when it comes to nationalism.'
'Exactly!' cried Henry. `When they forget all about the Patria and Mexico and all that stuff, they're as nice a people as you'd find. But as soon as they get national, they're just monkeys. A man up from Mixcoatl told me a nice story. Mixcoatl is a capital way in the South, and they've got a sort of Labour bureau there. Well, the Indians come in from the hills, as wild ''as rabbits. And they get them into that bureau, and the Laboristas, the agitator fellows, say to them: Now, Seziore.r, have you anything to report from your native village? Haven't you anything for which you would like redress? Then of course the Indians start complaining about one another, and the Secretary says : Wait a minute, gentlemen!

You will see that ju.rtice is done and the thing is made right? Ah .renor, many thanks! In the name of these gentlemen from the hills, from the village of Apaxtle, many thanks.

The moment's fatal pause followed this funny story.
`Oh but!' said Kate, `it's wicked! It is wicked. I'm sure the Indians would be all right, if they were left alone.'
'Well,' said Mrs Norris, `Mexico isn't like any other place in the world.'
But she spoke with fear and despair in her voice.
`They seem to want to betray everything,' said Kate. `They seem to love criminals and ghastly things. They seem to want the ugly things. They seem to want the ugly things to come up to the top. All the foulness that lies at the bottom, they want to
