CHAPTER II - Tea party in Tlacolula

`What two lots?' said Kate, surprised.
`Those peon fellows and those obreros, all drunk, the lot of them. The lot of them!' And in a spasm of pure, frustrated hate, he turned his back on her.
At the same time they saw the lights of a tram-car rushing dragon-like up the dark road, between the high wall and the huge trees.
`Here's our car!' said the judge, beginning to scramble excitedly with his stick.
`You go the other way,' flung the baby-faced, faded woman in the three-cornered satin hat, also beginning to fluster as if she were going to swim off the pavement.
The couple clambered avidly into the brightly-lighted car, first class; hobbling up. The natives crowded into the second class.
Away whizzed the tren. The Burlap couple had not even said good night. They were terrified lest they might have to know somebody whom they might not want to know; whom it might not pay to know.
`You common-place little woman!' said Kate aloud, looking after the retreating tram-car. `You awful ill-bred little pair.'
She was a bit afraid of the natives, not quite sober, who were waiting for the car in the opposite direction. But stronger than her fear was a certain sympathy with these dark-faced silent men in their big straw hats and naive little cotton blouses. Anyhow they had blood in their veins: they were columns of dark blood.
Whereas the other bloodless, acidulous couple from the Middle-West, with their nasty whiteness ...!
She thought of the little tale the natives tell. When the Lord was making the first men, He made them of clay and put them into the oven to bake. They came out black. They're baked too march! said the Lord. So He made another batch, and put them in. They came out white. They're baked too little! He said. So He had a third try. These came out a good warm brown. They're just right! said the Lord.
The couple from the Middle-West, that withered baby-face and that limping judge, they weren't baked. They were hardly baked at all.
