                  The fall of the establishment in Brooklyn was preceded by 
             some weeks by the more advantageous establishment of New Orleans.  
             Five Brothers (Vincent, Theodulus, Basil, Francis of Sales, and 
             Louis), and three Sisters (Five Wounds, Calvary, and Nativity) 
             proceeded thither towards the end of April, and on May 1st they 
             took charge of the Orphan Boys' Asylum, at a salary of $125 
             apiece, and $25 additional for a director and a directress, 
             payable semi-annually in advance.
