pg 459 St. Joseph's Novitiate This year has been as a year of new birth to the Brothers' Novitiate. Hardly had the building been finished on the plan of the former house much enlarged, when it was filled with novices and postulants. Soon what had been considered sufficient for a number of years was found to be too small, and it was deemed necessary to think of adding the two towers [wings?] which had been left for the future. Fifty-five novices and postulants spent the year there as models of regularity and of the observance of the rules of the novitiate. The classes were followed at the college and there was greater regularity in the exercises, the number there present representing piety became established, peace reigned without interruption, and it can be said of the house that it was truly a regular and edifying community.
