he actual reference in "The Capital of the World" short story reads, "MADRID IS FULL OF BOYS NAMED PACO, which is the diminutive of the name Francisco, and there is a Madrid joke about a father who came to Madrid and inserted an advertisement in the personal columns of El Liberal which said: PACO MEET ME AT HOTEL MONTANA NOON TUESDAY ALL IS FORGIVEN PAPA and how a squadron of Guardia Civil had to be called out to disperse the eight hundred young men who answered the advertisement. But this Paco, who waited on table at the Pension Luarca, had no father to forgive him, nor anything for the father to forgive. Hemingway's short story is actually about a waiter aspiring to be bull fighter who dies in the restaurant practicing his cape work.

Let's be clear on a couple of things. 1. Hemingway never wrote a story about a father's search for his son. In his short story, "The Capital of the World" her opens with the reference to a Joke told in Madrid ab out a father searching for his son, who finally posts an ad in the paper... 2. Referring to this illustration as a story Hemingway wrote is inaccurate at best, deceptive at worst. 3. I have read some sermon where pastor have stated that their favorite Hemingway story is about a father searching for Paco, implying that not only did Hemingway write such a story, but that they have read it. Any Reference like this from our Pulpits is shameful.
