NOTES AND QUERIES. IQOIICS. THE PICTURE GALLERY.-In a letter to Mr. F. X. Reuss, Most Rev. M. A. Corrigan supplies information regarding the authorship of the book, whereof are being reprinted in these RECORDS many illustrations relating to ancient religious orders. Archbishop Corrigau writes: “ Glancing through the March number of the " AMERICAN CATHOLIC Hrsroarcar.

The edition of 1792, still less valuable, except the colored plates. Three other works on the same subject mentioned by Brunet.

That Congregation immediately raised the money to enable him to repay what was advanced from Albany. If Mr. Began comes here, it is incum- bent on us to refund the same to them ; for which purpose We, the Sub- scribers, agree to pay the sums aflixed to our names: 23!
