Brother Aidan's Extracts


F. Robinson to Sorin . . . "The Reverend gentleman stopped in this city a few days during which time I saw him and had a little conversation about Brownsville. He promised to do all he could to send back our members -- and never were any more needed anywhere than here at present. The young man who was assisting Brother Ignatius became so sickly that he had to give up and go home about a week ago. Bro. Ignatius in consequence has nearly 100 boys to teach. But he is a brave old soldier, and always looks forward to what you termed in your last letter 'the better time-a-coming'" M. Robinson, c.s.c., Industrial School of Holy Cross, New Orleans, 1874
