Fernandes of Mississauga, Ontario,
"The news of the establishment of a better Library
equipped with rich literature, books, original
manuscript in Konkani, and with a Goan name ought to

benefit from this feat and profit from the joint
efforts of the Goans who with great sacrifice
assisted in any way in this project."
