The first dim history of St. Patrick
dates 411 A. D., when the Scots and
he Picts fell upon the Roman camps
near Solway in Britain and carried
him off with a multitude of prisoners.
He was taken to Ireland and sold as a
slave. He was held in bondage at
the hardest work. He escaped from
his captors and finally made his way
to Killada bay, the inlets of which
were a favorable resort for sea rovers.
On one of these vessels he was tak
en to continental Europe and is heard
pf in France, Italy and on an island in

of a churchy race and was imbued

In a vision, thrice repeated, he saw
his duty to be in Ireland and to that

say he was about 30 years old when
he began to teach. His personality,
