pg 473       members of the council during those two years of trouble, was that 
             they all along expected the Visit of the Superior General, of whom 
             they had not the slightest fear if they only had a chance to show 
             him how much the dispositions of the Province were misjudged.  
             They never doubted that his presence would have restored perfect 
             harmony in a few days.  
                  In the month of August of this year the Brothers' school at 
             St. Paul's, Philadelphia was closed during F. Sorin's voyage to 
             France, the pastor refusing obstinately to give or promise a fixed 
             salary such as the Brothers receive in all their other 
             establishments.  Experience had proved that otherwise the good 
             Brothers would not make their expenses.
