In anticipation of our (the Clergy) being all called to Kingston for Holy Week, I write to ask if it will disturb your present arrangements in any respect, that I crave a shake down in your Refuge where I can secure that quiet so dear to old folk, and which I could hardly expect elsewhere? Also to secure a set of vestments for me, should I require them!
Apr. 4, 1895 – To General Superior Sr. M. Edward, Kingston ON from Rev. O’Connor, Chesterville ON
House of Providence,
