F had obligingly given your father a letter of introduction, this was the Rev. Dr. S Vicar Apostolic of the Mauritius, who was then going out to take possession of his diocese, we found him a most agree able and delightful companion on board; and the pleasing impression made by his polished manners and mild benevolent countenance on our first acquaintance, became in our minds a sentiment of sin cere esteem and regard, as we grew more and more intimate with the character of the good Bishop of Ruspa; such is his title.
