Your kind letter reached me duly, but before I had an opportunity of replying, your request was complied with, in a most unexpected manner, and one which surprised me greatly. I was much pleased to hear that you bear testimony of this good Sister’s usefulness in your Schools, the progress of which I would not retard for the world, I can assure you Rev. Father.
Aug. 27, 1891 – To Rev. Harkins, St. Jerome’s Church, Holyoke, MA from General Superior Sr. M. Edward, Kingston ON
