FOURTEENTH ANNUAL REPORT,
to do their best for the maintenance of the educational establishments.
The last school I visited was at Corfu; 100 girls attend there. The school was founded by the excellent Chief Rabbi, Signor C. E. Levi. The order was admirable, the children were very intelligent, and their neatness left nothing to be desired. Though the Corfu Jews, who number 6,000 to 7,000, seek to support the school, it suffers from an insufficiency of funds. This well-regulated institution deserves to be properly supported, Corfu being the most important Jewish community in Greece, a country in which the fullest toleration is enjoyed.

APPENDIX E.
MR. B. L. BENAS'S REPORT OF HIS TRAVELS IN
THE EAST.
[Extracts.]
In rendering you this report of the schools and institutions which I have visited in the course of my travels in the East, I wish to premise that the Association, and I especially, owe a deep debt of gratitude to the Rev. Dr. Adler, who, although unofficially, has been most unwearied and untiring in his zeal carefully to examine and inspect every matter that concerns the welfare of our Jewish institutions. I augur the best results from the visit of the Delegate Chief Rabbi to Egypt and the Holy Land, he having shown that a deep and unswerving attachment to, and a scrupulous observance of our holy faith is consistent with a cultured and dignified sympathy with Western progress and education.
I venture to think that the example shown will have a more enduring effect than the precept and advice which comes to them so frequently.
