October 5, 1834 ~ Philippine Duchesne writes to Mother Barat, "The distribution of prizes took place this year in the presence of Bishop Rosati and several priests. A young Irish girl received the prize of excellence. The Bishop thought all went off very well. There were more recitations in English than in French. An English dialgue on natural philosophy gave the greatest pleasure to the audience. One must always put in some high-sounding phrases in this country."
