Thus they were in the position of eating as food the plant, the body, in which was manifested the spirit whom they worshipped. In this there was an outward resemblance to the Christian rite of communion, which could not fail to attract the attention of the Spanish priests at the time of the conquest of Mexico, but which has probably been unconsciously magnified by them.

On the following morning, the Victoria and Albert crossed to Holyhead. A glad event at Balmoral that year was the laying of the foundation- stone of the new house.
