A grateful tribute from the Dominican community, Cabra to the memory of the most devoted and most self-sacrificing of friends,
The Ven Archdeacon Russell, V.C., who, ever solicitous, during a prolonged ministry of forty - four years, for all the interests of religion and education in South Australia, showed a special solicitude for such of those interests as the Cabra Sisters laboured to promote.
