Mar. 30, 1893 – To Sisters from General Superior Sr. M. Edward, Kingston ON

House of Providence, Kingston
Mar. 30, 1893
Very dear Sisters:
Having received during the past few months, many proofs of devotion [illegible] from our missionary Sisters, by means of letters [illegible] we have become debtors to many and not being able to repay the indebtedness of your cheques for the amount which we shall redeem at the Holy Altar on Easter morning when we kneel to receive the Risen Saviour. Then dear Sisters you will be present to my mind one and all, and if the Spouse of our souls gives each one what I ask for her then indeed will she be blest. Since the establishment of our little Convent in Perth you have co-operated most generously with us in all that tended to the advancement of holy religion and the Community and heavens’ blessings have been abundantly bestowed. Continue therefore dear Sisters to labor in this same good disposition and ere the dawn of another Easter you may happily merit a still greater approbation. While we rejoice with you in your success we fervently implore benediction on yourselves and labors and most heartily wish you dear Sisters all the Joys that Easter can bring.
We remain with Magdalen near our Risen Lord
Yours Affectionately
Mother M. Edward, Sup. Gen.
Sister M. Gabriel, Sec.
