It is at the request of Most Rev. Michael J. Curley, Archbishop of Bal timore. that the pastors hers and else where In the archdiocese, will call the choirs’ coming to the attention of their congregations. Archbishop Curley has taken a warm interest in the concert. The moment he was informed that the choirs would visit Washington, he Informed Dr. George L. Leech of the apostelic delegation here, who is chairman of a committee sponsoring the concert, that he wished to sub scribe for a box and that he would attend personalty. Many of the boxes have been taken by European diplomats, they know ing of the eminence of the singers abroad. Archbishop Curley's warm co-opera tlon in the benefit concert here recalls that one of the most precious posses sions of Maestro Casimiri, director of the choirs, is a letter of highest com mendation written by the late Cardi nal Gibbons, Monslgnor Curley's prede cessor in the Bee of Baltimore, in 1819 on the occasion of the choirs' single previous visit to the United States.
