In a London ceremony, Henry Edward Manning is consecrated as the Catholic Archbishop of Westminster

Henry Edward Manning had been a prominent member of the conservative wing of the Church of England but lost faith in the Church's direction and converted to Roman Catholicism in 1851.  The loss of such a high ranking member of the established church caused a sensation.  He was consecrated at ten o'clock in the morning as the second Archbishop of Westminster at a ornate ceremony at St. Mary's Church in Moorfields in London.  He became a cardinal in 1875.  (By John Osborne)
