Luis Montez, mine owner, stood on the broad veranda in front of his handsome home, looking out over the country sweeping away to the eastward. qGentlemen, you are in a land of golden promise, q began Senor Montez, with a smile and a bow. qI should call it more than promise. Why not? My beloved country, Mexico, has been shipping gold to the world ever since the days of Montezuma.q qYes; in a mineral sense Mexico has truly a golden history, q nodded Tom Reade, one of the engineers to whom Montez was speaking. qAnd a golden history in every sense, q added Senor Montez, with a quick rush of patriotism. qMexico is the finest country on earth. And, though we are neither as numerous in population, or as progressive as your own great country, still Mexico has greater possibilities than the United States.qLuis Montez, mine owner, stood on the broad veranda in front of his handsome home, looking out over the country sweeping away to the eastward.
