House of Providence, Kingston

Rev. W.S. Kelly, Rector
St. Vincent de Paul Rectory,
[illegible], N.Y.
Dear Rev. Father,

Your letter was received last Evening and I am very grateful for the information it contained and for the suggestion, which you so kindly make relative to “Petite Estate”. Last month Mr. E.C. Emerson of Watertown apprised us that a bequest had been left our Institution, and requested us to send our legal title which is “Sisters of Charity House of Providence, Kingston, Ont.” I have heard nothing further regarding the matter.

Since you have interested yourself so far may I ask you Rev. Father, to engage the services of Mr. Ward [?] for us. I am only delighted that you make this request and this gentleman is a stranger to me and the Community.

Thanking you very Sincerely for this mark of interest in our Institution.

I am Rev. Father
Very Respectfully Yours
Mother Mary Edward, Sup. Gen.
