Aug. 17, 1895 – To General Superior Sr. M. Edward, Kingston ON from Mrs. Dennee, Bath ON

Bath, Ontario
Aug. 17, 1895
To the Reverend Mother of the House of Providence
Dear Reverend Mother

I regreted not seeing you when I call[ed] on you, but I am sure the Sister I met has explained the object of my visit, namely to invite my daughter, Sister Dennee, and any other Sister you might choose to send for a visit home. I forgot to mention to the Sisters that I will defray their expenses if it is possible for them to come.

I asked my daughter if she would feel disappointed if she could not come; her answer was. “If I am allowed to go I know it will be God’s will, and for some good purpose, if not I will be satisfied knowing that is also the will of God.”

Knowing that you will do what is wisest and best, I remain
Respectfully yours
Mrs. J.R. Dennee
