San Antonio in Bexar County, Texas — The American South (West South Central)
San Antonio Ledger, June 23, 1853
—Main Plaza —
We strolled into a Justice’s Court the other day, and were reminded of the time when God smote the children of men with a confusion of tongues. A German was complained of by a Mexican, and a Frenchman was the witness. Each spoke his native tongue only, and yet there were no interpreters. Both Justice and Attorneys understood the four languages.
