Feb 19, 1894 – To Our Lady’s Home, Dublin, Ireland from General Superior Sr. M. Edward, Kingston ON

House of Providence, Kingston
Feb. 19, 1894
To Miss McCarthy, Sub-mistress
Our Lady's Home,
Dublin, Ireland
My dear Madam:

You will be pleased to hear that Kate M’Nally and Bridget Brennan arrived safely in Kingston, they are both here yet, not being able to procure a situation without a recommendation of good character. No lady in this country will take one of these girls into her family, as long as she can secure good respectable, well-recommended girls.

I wrote you once before, telling you not to send any more such girls to my address and I wish now to repeat it most emphatically.

I am, dear Madam, respectfully yours,
Mother M. Edward, Sup. Gen.
