The Story of Notre Dame
Brother Aidan's Extracts


(On Bigotry) 1854: "The Protestant Ministers continue to do their utmost to destroy our schools. They have obtained a new law which orders a general tax for the purpose of educating all the children in the same

schools, without distinction of sex or fortune These schools, now in vogue throughout the Union, have closed all the others, with few exceptions. The Catholic schools are nearly the only ones remaining open, but the attendance is much smaller than the preceding years, especially in some localities."
