Dec. 16, 1893 – Mr. Behan, Kingston, ON from General Superior Sr. M. Edward, Kingston ON

House of Providence, Kingston
Dec. 16, 1893
Mr. J.J. Behan
Dear Sirs:
I have just returned home and find that the Water Company have brought a meter, and I wish you to do me the favor of seeing Mr. Polion(?) and using your influence against this action. There is no meter in the Orphans’ Home nor House of Industry, and why should this be imposed on our Institution. We are deriving no benefit from the parties that use the water. They are the poor, homeless creatures that we keep for Charity, we are willing to pay what we always paid for water; but feel we can do no more.
Please do what you can and oblige yours
Mother M. Edward, Sup. Gen.
