King William's Town, which is a flourishing town of 7,000 inhabitants. Many German Catholics live here and in the neighbourhood, but people of Irish extraction are in the majority. The church here is the most beautiful in South Africa, pavement all marble ; three altars from Genoa which are beautiful works of art, and magnificent painted glass windows from Messrs. Mayer and Co., Munich. Father Fagan is the venerated and beloved parish priest.
