Just now arrangements are being made for the annual celebration of the “Feast of St. James”, and a number of ladies who are willing to devote themselves generously to the work have been invited. If you could lend your valuable services to this little project of charity by calling on the good people residing in Bagot St., King and Wellington Sts. from Princess St. you would greatly increase the happiness of the poor old people and little orphans all of whom are anxiously looking forward to a very pleasant day.
