Most Rev. J.V. Cleary, S.T.D,
Archbishop of Kingston
My dear Lord Archbishop,

Your Grace’s letter per Vicar General Gauthier of Easter Saturday reached me the following Thursday. I delayed acknowledging its receipt, hoping each day to hear some encouraging news, but the days go by and still no appearance of anything that would give me hope of a peaceful termination of this most unhappy affair.

I thank Your Grace for the advice given and I will follow it exactly. I appreciate, above all, the kindness of Your Grace in thinking of us at a time when overwhelmed with other and more pressing duties.

I have heard or read that you are invited to the Ceremony of Consecration of the Cathedral in Hartford on Sunday the…and I cannot resist the temptation to ask to meet Your Grace some place that I might be so privileged as to see you even for a half hour.

Sister Mary Edward, S.G.
