Nov. 4, 1895 – To Mayor and Alderman of Kingston ON from General Superior Sr. M. Edward, Kingston ON

Petition for abatement of Water rate, Nov. 4, 1895
Nov. 4, 1895
To the - Mayor & Aldermen,
City Corporation, Kingston
We, the Sisters of Charity, House of Providence, Kingston, most humbly ask your kind consideration of the rate now being charged us for the supply of water to our Institution this year. For last year the quarters of April and July respectively were $23.76 & $24.15 or an average of $23.96 per quarter. At that time we had the Meter in, as we also had for the First quarter of this year, the rate of which amounted to $28.81 and during this quarter the Masons were at work on our new buildings, consequently, a greater quantity of water was consumed. Therefore, we cannot understand being charged for the last two quarters at the latter rate.
Beseeching your honorable body, the kind consideration of the above peition,
I have the honor to be, respectfully and humbly yours,
Mother M. Edward, Sup. Gen.
