103 The Indian Advocate.
We are greatly indebted to Rev. A. Santatidreu, Rec
tor; and Rev. M. Villadomat, assistant, for the kind hospi
tality rendered to us, during" our visit. We did not have
the honor of meeting- the Archbishop, his Grace being in
Rome. Very Rev. J. Prendergast, V. G., received us

San Jose and Los Gatos, where the Jesuits have their
Novitiate and Scholasticate. Here we do not really know
what to admire most whether the good taste of the Fathers
in selecting such incomparable place for the purpose, or
the masterly manner in which they train their subjects, or
the cordial reception of which we were the object. May
God pour the choicest blessings upon his elect. Tres Pi
nos was our terminus dear Tres Pinos! small retired,
rather unknown to men, but cherished' by the Heavenly
Father. Well may Rev. M. Smyth be proud of this, his
