CHAPTER II - Tea party in Tlacolula

reads the pages of a novel, with a certain disinterested amusement. She was never in any society: too Irish, too wise.
`But of course nobody lives without hope,' Mrs Norris was saying banteringly to Don Ramon. `If it's only the hope of a real, to buy a litre of pulque.' '
'Ah, Mrs Norris!' he replied in his quiet, yet curiously deep voice, like a violoncello: `If pulque is the highest happiness!'
`Then we are fortunate, because a tostdn will buy paradise,' she said.
`It is a bon mot, Seriora mia,' said Don Ramon, laughing and drinking his tea.
`Now won't you try these little native cakes with sesame seeds on them!' said Mrs Norris to the table at large. 'My cook makes them, and her national feeling is flattered when anybody likes them. Mrs Leslie, do take one.'
`I will,' said Kate. `Does one say Open Sesame!'
`If one wishes,' said Mrs Norris.
`Won't you have one?' said Kate, handing the plate to Judge Burlap.
`Don't want any,' he snapped, turning his face away as if he had been offered a plate of Mexicans, and leaving Kate with the dish suspended.
Mrs Norris quickly but definitely took the plate, saying:
`Judge Burlap is afraid of Sesame Seed, he prefers the cave shut.' And she handed the dish quietly to Cipriano, who was watching the old man's bad manners with black, snake-like eyes.
`Did you see that article by Willis Rice Hope, in the EwxelSior?' suddenly snarled the judge, to his hostess.
`I did. I thought it very sensible.'
`The only sensible thing that's been said about these Agrarian Laws. Sensible! I should think so. Why Rice Hope came to me, and I put him up to a few things. But his article says everything, doesn't miss an item of importance.'
`Quite!' said Mrs Norris, with rather stony attention. `If only saying would alter things, judge Burlap.'
'Saying the wrong thing has done all the mischief !' snapped the judge. `Fellows like Garfield Spence coming down here and talking a lot of criminal talk. Why the town's full of Socialists and Sinverguenzas from New York.'
