MANUELITA


THE STORY OF SAN XAVIER DEL BAC



By

MARIAN CALVERT WILSON

AUTHOR OF "RENEE" AND "GUY ORMSBY"



Of a Sabbath morn, or some hallowed day,
When prayers are made and masses are said,
Some for the living, and some for the dead,
Well might the traveller start to see
The tall, dark forms, that take their way
From their simple homes, on the river shore,
And the forest paths, to that chapel door;
And marvel to mark the naked knees
And the dusky foreheads bending there,
While in coarse, white vesture, over these
In blessing or in prayer,
Stretching abroad his thin, pale hands,
Like a shrouded ghost, the Jesuit stands."
