ABBOT BAMFORD


       It will interest many of his Cumberland friends to learn that Abbot
BAMFORD has been given the cure of St. Wilfrid's Blyth, Northumberland. This is
the largest mission on the East Coast in charge of the Benedictine Fathers,
and it happens to be the first mission in which Abbot BAMFORD served as curate,
and from which he was transferred to Frizington.

       We hear his appointment is received with great satisfaction by the
congregation at Blyth, and we are sure his Cumberland friends wills end their
best wishes after him in his new sphere of labour.
