THE MATS
(Summary)

For the Angeles family, Mr. Angeles’ homecoming from his periodic inspection trips was always an occasion for
celebration. But his homecoming—from a trip to the South—was fated to be more memorable than, say, of the others.

He had written from Mariveles: “I have just met a marvelous mat weaver—a real artist—and I shall have a
surprise for you. I asked him to weave a sleeping mat for every one of the family. He is using many different colors and
for each mat the dominant color is that of our respective birthstones. I am sure that the children will be very pleased. I
know you will be. I can hardly wait to show them to you.”

Nana Emilia read the letter that morning and again and again every time she had a chance to leave the kitchen. In the
evening when all the children were home from school she asked her oldest son, Jose, to read the letter at the dinner
table. The children became very much excited about the mats, and talked about them until late into the night. This
wrote her husband when she labored over a reply to him. For days after that, mats continued to be the chief topic of
conversation among the children.
