Second edition. "Prior to his brief tour in 1897, clergyman Sullivan McCollester believed Mexico's hope and salvation must come from some Spanish inspiration. But what he saw there caused him to believe that the whole problem of Mexican backwardness was created by three centuries of Spanish domination and the country's 'talent and promise' was vested in the Indian. While McCollester wrote mostly of the sights, he was particularly impressed by the schools he visited and the government's support of Education. - Cole. AMERICAN TRAVELERS TO MEXICO. #268.
