May 30, 1895 – To Rev. Kelly, Trevelyan,

House of Providence, Kingston
May 30, 1895
Rev. J.J. Kelly
Trevelyan, P.O. Ont.
Reverend and Dear Father,

Now that the Conference is indefinitely postponed and there appears to be no early opportunity of seeing you, I thought I would write you concerning the little business treated of in our last communications.

Our Sister Tertiary is succeeding very nicely and while she is giving perfect satisfaction to those around her she is the picture of health and happiness. Miss Quigley is the young girl who expressed a desire to devote her life to the service of God in some Religious Order. Miss E. Stephens, 618 Dorchester St. whom you already know, is well acquainted with this person. Miss Margaret O’Kane, 21 Catanage Road, is another young girl equally religiously inclined. There is also a third, Miss Fanny Axcent, 37 Alexander Street.

If you visit Montreal you might have a chance of speaking with one or all of these girls and encourage them to become members of the Third Order.

Heartily thanking you for the warm interest you have taken in our Institute and asking to be kindly remembered to your dear sisters.

I am dear Rev. Father, Yours with respect and gratitude,
Mother M. Edward, Sup. Gen.
