Excerpt from Terra Incognita: Or the Convents of the United Kingdom

All these expressions have reference to communities of reli gions women; and it is in this sense - namely, its popular acceptation - that the word convent is used throughout this book.

As almost every community of nuns in these kingdoms is engaged in the work of education - especially that of the poorer classes - the chapters which I have introduced on Pri mary Education will be found to be quite apposite to my subject. A similar remark applies to the chapter on Reforma tory and Industrial Schools.
