CHAPTER V - The Lake

`Very different, no?' he said. `But in some ways, the same. He knows better what is Mexico. He knows better what I am. Bishop Severn did not know the real Mexico: how could he, he was a sincere Catholic! But Don Ramon knows the real Mexico, no?'
`And what is the real Mexico?' she asked.
`Well - you must ask Don Ramon. I can't explain.'
She asked Cipriano about going to the lake.
`Yes!' he said. `You can go! You will like it. Go first to Orilla, no? - you take a ticket on the railway to Ixtlahuacan. And in Orilla is an hotel with a German manager. Then from Orilla you can go in a motor-boat, in a few hours, to Sayula. And there you will find a house to live in.'
He wanted her to do this, she could tell.
'How far is Don Ramon's hacienda from Sayula?' she asked.
`Near I About an hour in a boat. He is there now. And at the beginning of the month I am going with my division to Guadalajara: now there is a new Governor. So I shall be quite near too.
`That will be nice,' she said.
`You think so?' he asked quickly.
`Yes,' she said, on her guard, looking at him slowly.
should be sorry to lose touch with Don Ramon and you.'
He had a little tension on his brow, haughty, unwilling, conceited, and at the same time, yearning and desirous.
`You like Don Ramon very much?' he said. `You want to know him more?'
There was a peculiar anxiety in his voice.
`Yes,' she said. `One knows so few people in the world nowadays, that one can respect - and fear a little. I am a little afraid of Don Ramon: and I have the greatest respect for him -' She ended on a hot note of sincerity.
`It is good!' he said. `It is very good. You may respect him more than any other man in the world.'
`Perhaps that is true,'she said, turning her eyes slowly to his.
'Yes! Yes !' he cried impatiently. `It is true. You will find out later. And Ramon likes you. He told me to ask you to come to the lake. When you come to Sayula, when you are coming, write to him, and no doubt he can tell you about a house, and all those things.'
