He did Dot think there was any strong feeling against Americans, and he said within a short time America's position during the war would be forgotten by the people, as they blame the Spanish Government for all the difficulties This has also been the judgment of all those with whom we have talked. Senor Azcarate promised to find someone of confidence who would in terest himself for us, and would look up available land and buildings. Mr, Guhck therefore returned to Biarritz. and Miss Hopkins and I made a rapid tour through the South, which gave us an opportunity to see the girls who had graduated in past years and who are now teaching in that part of the coun try. It has given us great satisfaction to see how well they are fulfilling their tasks, and to prove from facts that this institution is an absolute necessity in Spain. We have been urged by interested parents to have the International In stitute in Cordova, Seville, Malaga, Saragossa, Barcelona, or in some other city in which they are respective!' in terested. On our return to Madrid Senor Azca rate came to see us and introduced his friend, Senor Sabina a "corredor de foncas," a real estate agent. vvnn tsenor bauina several proper ties were seen and studied. Mrs. Gu lick writes: The house and property which we have decided to bring before the directors as desirable from every point of view as far as we could learn is the estate of the Count of Carrage ria, who died about two years ago. It is situated in the Barrio (ward) de Arguellas on the Calle (street) Quen tara, between Calle Tator and Calle Don Martin. This war is one of the best in Madrid, being a residence quar ter. It is fully built up with good houses, so there is a reason to believe that there would be no trouble from factories or other undesirable build ings. Electric trams pass, on Calle Ferras and Calle Princess to the Puerta del Sol, the central square of the city. The ward Arguellas is in an elevated part of the city. Water from" the ca nal de Lezoys (reservoir) reaches to the highest stories of the house, while on the other side of the city it does not rise naturally above the first story. The estate covers an area of 3,76S square meters, 1,072 being occupied by the building. The property is sur rounded by a fine high wall. The house was erected in 1871 under the direction of the architect, Senor Ruiz de Salers, and is of solid construction and in fine condition. No expense was spared in the material used in the stonework. woodwork and doors, windows, etc. The plans will give an idea of the size of the buildings, number of rooms, etc. The basement is finished with stone floors, and all the rooms on the sides of the house could be used for cabi nets, or probably classrooms. The first and second floors have numerous large rooms which can be utilized for all the purposes of the institute. The third floor is also finished off, though under the roof, and can be used for dormitories. There is a low tower at each corner of the building, about twenty feet square. These are admirably suited for classrooms, or library, or astronom ical work, etc. On the second floor is a small sacristry and chapel from which the altar has been removed, which would serve for our own use, for the present, at least. There are baths and an arrangement for heating water. One section of the third story has been provided with a small kitchen, so that it could serve in case of need for a hospital. The bedrooms on the first and second floors have fireplaces, but it would be neces sary for us to have some method of heating the whole house, which would be, in the end, less expensive. The house is lighted by gas. There are electric bells. The estate has a per petual water-right which is valued at 800 gallons daily, from the Canal de Lezoye (reservoir). The first cost of the estate was over $300,000, and today the agent estimates the actual value at $200,476. The present owners, the three chil dren of the Count, have their own residences and desire to. sell this es tate in order to divide the property. Others besides ourselves are consider ing the question of buying it. The agent has mentioned a price, including the 4 per cent Government commis sions, etc., a total of 170,000 Spanish dollars, or, with the present rate of exchange, $140,000 in American money. He said there could be an arrangement for the payment of the money in in- J stallments. It is our impression if we should offer $125,000 in American money it would be accepted. But it might be we should loose it by not closing prompetly with the offer, or by not being able to come up a little, or even giving the whole price asked. We are expected to give an answer as soon as possible. There is room in the garden if we should, in the future, wish to build a chapel or a gymnasium, or science hall. We have never seen anything in Spain which seems to be so well adapt ed as it stands to the different depart ments and special requirements of the International Institute for Girls in Spain. We hope the good news may soon come to us that you will be able to se cure this building. ALICE GORDON GULICK. By CAROLINE BORDEN, Secretary. Rival Houses.
