Rev. Mother,

I have been very anxious to return to the Community my share of the expenses incurred by the first coming to Holyoke of Sister Mary Ursula and myself. I am instructed to say to you that this obligation is cancelled by the money paid for the journey of Sister Mary of the Cross from Holyoke to Kingston. Her expenses were

Ticket to Montreal $10.60


For Hack Hire……..$1.00

[Total] …………..$13.60

The amount of my indebtedness was $12.50. It may interest you to know that our Rt. Rev. Bishop has received from Rome all necessary permissions to admit us to full membership in this Community.

Respectfully yours
Sr. M. James
