The Captain realizes that Mama was a woman to be taken seriously. He becomes very polite to her,

Her gaze met that of the captain in charge, and he knew immediately from the steeliness of her eyes that they were in the presence of a woman to be reckoned with. "Good afternoon, senora, are you the owner of this ranch?" Ch 5
