Rev. and Dear Father,

“The primitive spirit shall not decay while Father McDonagh lives,” You have given us a proof of your strict adherence to the old customs by sending us a box of delicious candy every year at this season; the fact is we look for this remembrance.

“Not alone is the contents of the little box heartily enjoyed but its distribution creates the greatest merriment among the Sisters.

“In offering you, Rev. Father, my warmest thanks and kindest wishes for the New Year I am joined by the Sisters whose united and fervent prayer is that you may enjoy many years of health, peace and prosperity!!

I remain your always-grateful friend,
Mother M. Edward, Sup. Gen.
