A Catholic tours Mexico and finds little to his liking, and plenty to condemn. The anti-Catholic movements have prejudiced him in advance, and he travels down from Texas, with a chip on his shoulder, looking for things to criticize. He succeeds in getting plenty to feed his distaste and he pours it all forth in this volume, -- places, people, travel accommodation, scenery, food, lodgings -- he was acutely miserable throughout. Stringent antidote to usual enthusiasm for Mexico and things Mexican. Particular market -- the Catholics who want food for their wrath.
