ST. BONIFACE CONGREGATION 127



A Last Word.



Gentle Reader! In venturing upon the preparation -of this little
Souvenir, the writer was fully aware of the fact that in the short
space of time alotted to him, he could do justice neither to the
subject under treatment nor to the occasion which calls it forth.
This, however, he can truthfully say, that he has spared himself no
pains to do his very hest, and now that his arduous task is coming
to a close, he is involuntarily reminded of the consoling words of
the poet when he says:

"Who does the best his circumstance allows,
Does well, acts nobly, angels could no more."

The writer wishes it to be understood above all things, that he
has undertaken this work in the spirit of "charity towards all, with
malice towards none," and hence whatever error may have crept
into his manuscript, or whatever oversight may have occurred, must
not be attributed to any sinister motive.

In looking over the task accomplished, it would be the height
of ingratitude not to acknowledge the valuable assistance received
from various persons., which is all the more appreciated the greater
was its need. In making his preliminary researches, he was greatly
aided by Mr. Fred Wolf, Sr., and still more by Mr. Edward
Sohm, who not only put his prodigious memory at his disposal, but
also went through a great deal of trouble to ferret out invaluable
information; in which he was assisted by the courtesies of Mr.
Botsford of the Quincy Herald and Mr. Bornmann of the Quincy
Germania.

In the preparation of his manuscript, the writer received assist-
ance not only from a number of little secretaries from St. Boniface
School, but also from Father Degenhardt and from the Sisters of
Notre Dame, as well as from Mr. Will Sohm, who was also a valuable
assistant proof-reader.

In providing the numerous illustrations for this Souvenir he
was aided especially by the faithful sacristan of St. Boniface, Mr.
George Schmeing, who searched in every nook in Quincy for the neces-
sary photographs; to the brilliant parish artist, Mr. John A. Sohm,
who is responsible for their masterful grouping; and to Messrs.
Anthony and Schenke of the Quincy Photo Engraving Co., who spared
themselves no pains in executing his designs. There are two pic-
tures in this volume that are of special interest, namely the two re-
sidences of Adam Schmitt that are reproduced below the caption
"Temporary Chapels of Primitive Days," and for these the writer
is indebted to Mr .Leonard Schmitt, nephew of the above, who sup-
plied from memory the details for the drawings, one of which was
made by the Quincy Photo Engraving Co., the other by M>r. Frank
Welimann, a member of the parish. A number of half-tones were
also supplied by Father Didacus, O. F. M., Pastor of St. Francis
Church, as well as by Mr. Chris Freiburg, the veteran program ex-
pert, who also furnished valuable information by means of an old
scrap-book which he faithfully kept for years.

Relative to the make-up of this volume, the writer cannot speak
too highly of the firm of Jost & Kiefer and their very efficient personnel,
who showed him the greatest courtesies, laboring in season and
out of season, leaving aside all other work of even a pressing nature
in order to have this Souvenir in readiness at the proper time. In
the bindery, where only two days were at their disposal, they were as-
sisted by the volunteer services of the following young ladies of the
parish: Miss Frances Ricker, Miss Elizabeth Kuhlmann, Miss Josie
Rummenie, Miss Ellen Hellmer, Miss Florence Heidemann, Miss Mary
Brandt.

To all, sincerest thanks! THE AUTHOR.
