CHAPTER XVII - Fourth Hymn and the Bishop

Mexico is not Mexico for nothing, however, and already blood had been shed on both sides. This Ramon particularly wanted to avoid, as he felt that violent death was not so easily wiped out of the air and out of the souls of men, as spilt blood was washed off the pavements.
Therefore, when he was in the City, he asked the Bishop of the West if he would consent to an interview with himself and Don Cipriano, and would he name the place. The Bishop - who was an old friend and adviser of Carlota, and who knew Ramon well enough - replied that he would be pleased to see Don Ramon and the Senor General the next day, if they would be so good as to come to his house.

`Goodl Senores!' he said, glancing up with his little black eyes. `At your service ! Entirely at the service of your Honours.'
`Dona Carlota is in the city, Father. You have seen her?' said Ramon.
`Yes, son of mine;' said the Bishop.
`Then you know the latest news about me. She told you everything.'
`Somewhat! Somewhat! She spoke somewhat of you, the
