The chief of the Order of w.s

"It seems to me that the matter could
be arranged without any great Incon

hoarded during the period ?ho was
studying at your medical school with
the nuns In a neighboring convent, for
which we would pay live crowns a

she should assist in operations at the
women's hospital, notalMy those per
formed by Professor M*nnnonl. Ho
Should also Rive her some private les
sons at the convent, for it appears
to mo that she should not be present
In classes with young men."
The council of the hospital, beln
well disposed to the Knights, adopt*
the suggestion. More than a centui
