Thanks be to God, the Holyoke trouble is at an end, and I am confident that, by God’s blessing and favor to us, our Kingston Institute will flourish and develop its usefulness more fully and securely than heretofore. – However, to guard against the possibility of questions being hereafter raised that might tend to disturb peace of conscience among the Sisters, I desire that in like manner as the Sisters who recently returned from Holyoke signed their declaration a week ago, the two other Sisters – M. Philip and M. Teresa – will sign a paper stating that they are content and happy in belonging to the Institute of the Sisters of Charity in Kingston, and hope to remain in it, for the service of the poor of Christ, all the days of their lives.
