pg 120 contained only five articles but all were highly important for the success of the work. The first secured an absolute title to [the property of] Notre Dame du Lac, with the simple obligation of refunding $3000 to the Ordinary in case of sale and withdrawal [in case the property were to be sold and the community to withdraw]. The second permitted the recall of the novitiate to the Lake, the sale of the property of Indianapolis, on condition that $3000 should be paid back to the Bishop, whilst the $500 and the 375 acres should be retained, and the $600 advanced by the Bishop for the churches of South Bend and Mishawaka were to go to the building of that of the Lake. The third regulated the ordination of candidates of the Society and their immediate dependence on the jurisdiction of their legitimate superiors. The fourth provided that only two Brothers at the least should be sent out together on a mission. The fifth gave assurance of the protection of His Lordship especially within the limits of his diocese. The first article was executed on the spot, and the others will doubtless go into full effect in due time. The whole house blesses heaven for the happy arrangement, the only one that could put an end to the ever-recurring difficulties.
