Oct. 14, 1892 – To Rev. Monsignor O’Bryan, Rome Italy from General Superior Sr. M. Edward, Kingston ON

House of Providence, Kingston
Oct. 14, 1892
Rt. Rev. Mgr. O'Bryan
Dear Rev. Monsignor,

Your letter addressed to me in Holyoke was forwarded to Kingston and received Oct. 7. I have recently had a communication from Rome, stating that the Sacred Congregation decreed the Separation solely and only for the sake of restoring peace; not because the administration was at fault. The Sisters who remained faithful to this Mother house have returned and number fifteen.

I hope your Canadian trip may be pleasant and prove beneficial to your health.

I am Rt. Rev. Monsignor Yours most respectfully,
Mother M. Edward, Sup. Gen.
