WORKING IN SPAIN
(Continued from Page 1.)
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.
