§ Sir THOMAS ESMONDE
asked the Secretary to the Treasury when the Papal Registers from the Vatican Archives, passed for print last year, will be published?
§ Mr. HOBHOUSE
The whole of the text is in type and has been for some time. The greater part of the index is also now in type. The editor, who is not a salaried official, is engaged in completing the index at Rome in the Vatican library, which is only open at certain seasons of the year. I regret that it is not possible to fix a date for the issue of the work.
