Dear Rev. Mother:
On receipt of your letter of Jan. 13th I communicated with the Rt. Rev. Bishop of Springfield. He explains to me that the Sisters there are simply unable to pay the principal of their debt at present. He says however that they will willingly do as you suggest and pay you the interest on the amount they owe you. I hope that this arrangement will work in a satisfactory manner.
With sentiments of sincere respect I remain most faithfully yours in Xt.

No. 2552
