particulary from Belgium, to come and
settle here, and you know every settler doing
well is a source of revenue both for the
Government and the C. P. Rw [Canadian Pacific Railway]!
But as the position of our schools in
Winnipeg and other mixed centres is very
awkward and unfair, the best way to
prevent the people from complaining is
to give a serious help for the support of
their schools.
If you succeed in this mission, you
will deserve again the title of benefactor
of this country.
Signé Mgr Langevin
Arch. [Archevêque] de St. Boniface
