through the primary and high-school grades to special teachers' and business training classes. The enrollment is about go, not limited denominationally. The extensive grounds of the convent, which includes the academy, formerly the gardens of a large private estate, are of great beauty. St. Joseph's Convent is the mother house of the Sisters of Mercy in Maine.

43. The Tate House ( 1755) (open an application), Westbrook St., Stroudwater (2.8 m. west of city), is of interest historically and architecturally. Restored by the Maine Society of Colonial Dames, the old house, much of its unusual wood paneling said to have been brought from England, was the home of George Tate, mast agent for the English Navy, who supervised the purchase and delivery of timber suitable for the construction of masts and spars, reserving with 'the King's Mark' trees of the right size and shape, regardless of the owners' wishes. Later he was employed in the same capacity by the Czar of Russia. A son, George Tate, Jr., left this home for the sea and subsequently joined the Russian Navy, spending 50 years of his life in its service and eventually becoming its first Admiral as well as a member of the Imperial Senate. The exterior of this house, said by some to be Portland's oldest dwelling, has never been painted. In the interior, the beautiful wainscoting retains the gloss of its original white paint, and there are fireplaces in nearly every room, one of which, in a tiny attic chamber, was used by slaves. The house overlooks the site of the old mastyard on Fore River.

44. The Means House (private), 2 Waldo St., Stroudwater, has an interior even more exquisitely paneled than the Tate house. This dwelling with its brick ends and hip roof was built by Major James Means after his return from the Revolutionary War, and it is said that he lavished money on its construction. His prodigality is manifest today in the delicate woodwork, deep windows, and stairways, which have been well preserved.
