Old book giveaway

They were giving away some old books at the Chancery. I have never been one to say no to an old book even if it is a collection of the decrees of the third plenary council of Baltimore in Latin. This copy turned out to be quite special as it belonged to Father Fierens, who was pastor of the Portland Cathedral in the latter part of the 19th century, and later to Bishop O'Dea. One of them used a ticket to an ice cream festival as a bookmark.
