             at the point of intersection of the road going towards St. Mary's, 
             with a view to prolong thither the parterre that begins under the 
             windows of the college.  The two lodges are joined by a rail fence 
             which closes the road, that to the east being used as a post 
             office and the other as a porter's lodge, in which also Bro. 
             Francis Xavier keeps a little store of religious articles.
                  The number and the spirit of the pupils in the college seem 
             to be improving upon preceding years.  If nothing happens to cloud 
             the horizon, the year appears consoling and full of promise.  God 
             grant that His kingdom be sought first and always and by each and 
             every one, and that we may thus deserve the continuance of the 
             blessings without which we can do nothing.
