Much uncertainty had prevailed as to who should be chosen to carry on Mr. Baring鈥檚 most important work among the boys; but before the end of December suspense was ended. Another of Miss Tucker鈥檚 dharm-nephews, the Rev. Herbert U. Weitbrecht, with his wife and children, would come to live in Anarkalli, and Mr. Weitbrecht would be the Principal. By this time a Mission Bungalow in Batala was finished, and two German ladies, Miss Hoernle and Miss Krapf, came in the course of December to reside in it. Miss Tucker, however, does not yet appear to have thought of changing her quarters. Indeed, the little bungalow was built to contain only two ladies. TO MRS. HAMILTON. Suddenly, Captain William Ladd, of Minot, Maine, formerly a slave-holder in Florida, says, 鈥淭he usual allowance of food was a quart of corn a day to a full-task hand, with a modicum of salt; kind masters allowed a peck of corn a week.鈥? 鈥極ct. 22.鈥擱eturned to Batala.

Messrs. Griffin and Pullam, it seems, are equally fortunate! They are having fresh supplies weekly, and are going to keep a large, well-selected stock constantly on hand, to wit, 鈥渇ield-hands, house-servants, mechanics, cooks, seamstresses, washers, ironers, etc.鈥?
