The speaker spent two years in an Indian village working on a project for the Society off Friends and living as nearly as possible in the Indian way.

Appeal on behalf of Ely Cathedral Restoration Fund, by Donald McCullough
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]
Ely Cathedral looks like a great ship riding securely at anchor on the Fens-but it is faced with destruction or restoration, as the timbers of the roof, which extends for 537 feet, are being devoured by the death-watch beetle. The danger is greatest in the immense beams that support the Lantern-that marvel of medieval building. If the trouble here is not dealt w;th now, the whole four hundred tons of wood and stone wiJI crash to the ground, bringing enormous destruction with it. £ 60,000 is needed to make the building safe. That sum will save the Lantern, the transept roofs with their angel hammer beams, the choir roof, and the west tower. The work has begun, but the money is needed to ma'ntain it. Half a million pounds wouid hardly restore the structure it the Lantern fell.

Frank Greystock , now duly engaged to Lucy Morris , has been resrored to old Lady Fawn's favour. But Frank, still in debt and still reluctant to g.ve up his present expensive way of living, is already half regretting the engagement. Furthermore he has promised his rich and beautiful cousin Lizzie to take her part against her fiance, Lord Fawn, and against Mr. Camperdown, in the affair of the Eustace Diamonds. Frank, who has not told Lizzie of his own engagement, now begins to see her almost daily.
Lord Fawn, for his part, has told Lizzie that he will end their engagement unless she returns .the Eustace Diamonds to the trustees of her late husband's estate. Lizzie is determined that his lordship shall not escape her so easily. She is, however, perfectly prepared to throw him over if Frank will ask her to marry him. And this she is determined to make him do.
Sarah, Lizzie's maid:
