CHAPTER XV - The Written Hymns of Quetzalcoatl

`I could hear the voice -' said Kate. `I didn't know it was you, Julio. How do you do? - And I wondered so much what it was.'
There was a moment's dead silence. Then Juana plunged in. `Yes, Nirial Come! It's very nice that you come. Concha, the chair for the Nina!'
Concha got up rather unwillingly, and fetched the little low chair which formed Juana's sole article of furniture, save the one bed.
`I don't disturb you?' said Kate.
`No, Nina, you are a friend of Don RamBn, verdad?'
`Yes,' said Kate.
`And we - we are reading the Hymns.'
`Yes?' said Kate.
`The Hymns of Quetzalcoatl,' said Ezequiel, in his barking young voice, with sudden bravado.
`Do go on l May I listen !'
'You hear! The Nina wants to listen. Read, Julio, read! Read then.'
They all sat down once more on the ground, and Julio sat down by the lamp, but he hung his head, hiding his face in the shadow of his big hat.
'Entonces! - Read then,' said Juana.
`He is afraid,' murmured Maria del Carmen, laying her hand on the young man's knee. `However, read, Julio! Because the Nina wants to hear.'
And after a moment's struggle, Julio said in a muffled voice:
`Do I begin from the beginning.'
`Yes, from the beginning! Read!' said Juana.
The young man took a sheet of paper, like an advertisement leaflet, from under his blanket. At the top it had the Quetzal coatl symbol, called the Eye, the ring with the bird-shape standing in the middle.
He began to read in a rather muffled voice:
`I am Quetzalcoatl with the dark face, who lived in Mexico in other days.
`Till there came a stranger from over the seas, and his face was white, and he spoke with strange words. He showed his hands and his feet, that in both there were holes. And he said: " My name is Jesus, and they called me Christ. Men crucified me
