CHAPTER III - Fortieth Birthday

destroy the country till the Americans from the United States flood in. We are as California and New Mexico now are, swamped under the dead white sea.
`But let me tell you something further. I hope we are not Puritans. I hope I may say that it depends on the moment of coition. At the moment of coition, either the spirit of the father fuses with the spirit of the mother, to create a new being with a soul, or else nothing fuses but the germ of procreation.
`Now consider. How have these Mexicans of mixed blood been begotten, for centuries? In what spirit? What was the moment of coition like? Answer me that, and you have told me the reason for this Mexico which makes us despair and which will go on making everybody despair, till it destroys itself. In what spirit have the Spanish and other foreign fathers gotten children of the Indian women? What sort of spirit was it? What sort of coition? And then, what sort of race do you expect?'
`But what sort of a spirit is there between white men and white women!' said Kate.
`At least,' replied the didactic Toussaint, `the blood is homogeneous, so that consciousness automatically unrolls in continuity.'
`I hate its unrolling in automatic continuity,' said Kate.
`Perhaps ! But it makes life possible. Without developing continuity in consciousness, you have chaos. And this comes of mixed blood.'
`And then,' said Kate, `surely the Indian men are fond of their women ! The men seem manly, and the women seem very lovable and womanly.'
`It is possible that the Indian children are pure-blooded, and there is the continuity of blood. But the Indian consciousness is swamped under the stagnant water of the white man's Dead Sea consciousness. Take a man like Benito Juarez, a pure Indian. He floods his old consciousness with the new white ideas, and there springs up a whole forest of verbiage, new laws, new constitutions and all the rest. But it is a sudden weed. It grows like a weed on the surface, saps the strength of the Indian soil underneath, and helps the process of ruin. No, madam! There is no hope for Mexico short of a miracle.'
`Ah!' cried Mirabal, flourishing his wine-glass. `Isn't that
