RI93IAN CATHOLIC OR PROTESTANT? At a meeting of the visiting committee of the Cardiff Guardians, held at the workhouse on Tuesday, under the presidency of Mr. F. J. Beavan, an application was read from Dr. Davies, the resident medical officer for an increase of salary. He has been at the work- house three years, and at present receives £ 125 per annum.—It was decided to recommend an increase of £ 25 per annum.—A long rambling letter was read from Mrs. Boddington, an in- mate, complaining of the conduct of Father Sumner. She stated that Father Sumner had charged her with having entered herself as a Protestant, whereas she was a Roman Catholic. This she denied. She was formerly a Roman Catholic, but had now left that religion. She did not join the Church of England because she could not subscribe to the Thirty- nine Articles. (Laughter.) She had writ- ten to Bishop Hedley saying that she had come out of the Roman Catholic Church, and she had sent a copy of the letter to the Bishop of Llandaff. (Laugh- ter.) She wished the guardians to know that she was not now a Roman Catholic.—Father Brady said the woman was a Catho- lic some years ago, and Father Sumner knew her as one, and asked her why she had entered herself as a Protestant. He did not believe there was any other construction to be placed upon it. The w"man was certainly a little erratic. (Laughter.)—Mr. Greenhalgh, the master, said Father Sumner was asked to speak to Mrs. Boddington by one of the nurses, and saw the description of her religion on the card as "Protestant." He then told her that if she wanted him as a Catholic she must have the card altered—The Chairman: Have you heard enough, gentlemen?—Several mem- bers: Plenty.—Father Brady said the woman had since written an apology to Father Sumner. —It was agreed that the letter should lie on the table, "nd a resolution was passed exone- rating Father Sumner from blame. They con- sidered he had only done his duty as a Christian gentleman.
