Nov. 24, 1892 – To General Superior Sr. M. Edward, Kingston ON from Alice Nixon (Sr. M. Ursula) , Taunton MA

Nov. 24, 1892
Dear Rev. Mother,

I consider it my duty to let you know that I arrived home safely and as I was informed by my brother a very warm welcome awaited me. My poor dear Mother is feeling much happier since my return and desires me to thank you for your Motherly kindness to me during the past nine years. Since my return home, I have been able to take considerable nourishment and I find myself growing stronger every hour.

Thanking you from myself for all your kindness even to the last minute that I was with you and asking to be remembered in your prayers.

I am most sincerely,
Your child
