Dear Doctor:

Your letter containing $10.00 for Mrs. Coyne’s maintenance was duly received. The year ends on the 15th of June and I wish the account to be settled before that date, if at all possible. You know the care the poor old lady is and the sum of fifty dollars per year for her support is very little. But small as it we are glad to get it, at the same time I think something arrangement might be made to pay the amount within the year. Twenty-five dollars are now due and I would feel grateful if you could let me have the balance on or before the date above mentioned.

Thanking you for the lively interest you have always taken in this matter and hoping to receive a favorable reply.

I am sincerely yours,
Mother M. Edward, Sup. Gen.
