Now seriously, if I was writing a farce or novel or something about missionary efforts in this period, I might make up a name like that as a kind of caricature of the prevailing attitudes.
TH turned out to be a great research assistant. He made photo-copies for me on both Friday and Saturday and just surfed the net or answered emails on his iPhone when I didn’t need him—it was great. Around 12:30, I was able to talk with an archivist who works more closely with my record group and she recommended I pull some different files, so I ordered those before leaving for lunch (it takes a looong time for them to pull materials). Around 1:30 we headed out to the streets, the sunshine and the fresh air. We found a tapas restaurant called Jaleos Café pretty quickly. The first course we ordered was gazpacho flights. The variations, left to right, and to the extent that I can remember them--are: 1) pear and pinenuts, 2) cantaloupe, 3) apple and tomato, and 4) watermelon.
We also ordered 3 other plates: scallops w/yellow heirloom tomatoes and marinated onions (yum), gambas y aeoli, and sautéed spinach (w/all kinds of goodies inside: pineapple, pine nuts, garlic, etc.).
