    The Polish Library and National Museum

    It is with great pleasure that we wish to announce the fact that the donations to the Polish National Museum and Library have not ceased pouring in.

    Some organizations are donationg various kinds of books, others many important tokens or priceless works of art. We name a few, such as Mr. Czaplinski, who donated Webster's Dictionary, in English; Mr. Stanislaus Walewski, who gave seven volumes of Tarlo; Mr. Wendycz gave Licht und Schattenbilder Des New York Lebens, by James McCabe; the Kosciuszko Organization offered the complete works of J. I. Kraszewski, consisting of sixty-one books; and Mr. S. Nicki gave a piece of metal from the original coffin in which Adam Mickiewicz the greatest Polish poet, was buried.

    For these gifts we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

    A. Koinski
