Sept. 30, 1895 – To General Superior Sr. M. Edward, Kingston ON from Sr. M. of Mercy, Sisters of Providence Montreal QC

Asile de la Providence,
1631 St. Catherine Street
Sept. 30, 1895
My ever-dear Mother Edward

Thanks – many thanks for your kind and delicate attentions on the occasion of my feast. I cannot tell how much pleasure it afforded me particularly coming from the scene of my first labors and from the friends of my religious infancy.

Sr. Superior has allowed me to keep it and to dispose of it at my will. The Sisters all found it exquisite.

I am glad you were pleased with the breviary cover. Now today I send you the tables you ordered – they will go by the “Spartain” – he charges very reasonably – the general price being $7.00 each. I enclose you the bill and also the letter I have recd from my mute pupil. You will see by that that she can teach the Sisters the lingo and express herself in English – you know her of old – Clara Ammond.

Hoping to see you soon and thanking you again for your kind remembrance I remain devotedly
Sister M. of Mercy
