July 21, 1891 – To Rev. McGurkin, O.M.I. from General Superior Sr. M. Edward, Kingston ON

House of Providence, Kingston

Rev. M. McGurkin, O.M.I.
Ottawa University,
Ottawa, Ontario
Dear Rev. Father,

Miss Tobin has just gone from the Novitiate, and she did not write you previous to her departure, I thought I should notify you as to her whereabouts. She would not go to Montreal and was unwilling to return again to Ottawa, and as there was no suitable situation obtainable in this City, I sent her to our Sisters in Brockville, where she will probably remain until something can be secured her.

In case you would wish to communicate with Miss Tobin the following address will find her – St. Vincent de Paul Hospital, Brockville, Ont.

In sincere esteem I am Rev. Father,
Yours Very Respectfully,
Mother Mary Edward, Sup. Gen.
