Renfrew P.O. Ont.
My dear Miss Scully,

In reply to yours dated Nov. 20th. I may say that we can offer you very comfortable accommodations for $6.00 per month, but these mean sleeping in a common dormitory and taking your meals in a common dining-room. Still better accommodations are offered for $8.00 per month which entitles one to a private table or tray, but must sleep in a room with eight or ten other old ladies.

To secure a private room well furnished with first class table fare and every other convenience and attentions we charge at the rate of $5.00 per week.

Our Institution is well heated and fully equipped with all the necessary and modern convenience and appliances, consequently the Inmates are comfortable. One of our customs is that we never admit persons unless they present a line from their Pastor.

Hoping the above will be satisfactory; I am, faithfully yours,
Mother M. Edward, Sup. Gen.
