It is with a feeling of great satisfaction and even of gratitude that we present the third annual report of the work of this society.
A year ago found us with our new building insured indeed and well begun but with only part of the necessary funds secured. But thanks to the faithful efforts of the managers and the generosity of some of our friends outside, the needed amount was raised, so that we entered our new home early in November free from debt.
The building has proved to be admirably adapted to our needs and is not only an essential factor in the physical well-being of the inmates but contributes largely we believe to the success of the more important part of our work-the reforming and elevating of those for whom we labor.
