House of Providence,
Holyoke, Mass.
June 2, 1892
My dear Rev. Father,

Your most welcome letter of the 28th ult., was duly received and I need not tell you its contents were read and re-read, each word relating to His Grace’s interest in our cause bringing a new ray of hope.

A word on these little affairs of mine, when you have an opportunity and a reply will put me in your debt to a greater extent than I am already.

Will you please present my most respectful and grateful thanks to His Grace for his thoughts of us, for his blessings and above all for his prayers to God for the members of this struggling Community

and believe me to be Rev. & dear Father always yours respectfully,
Mother M. Edward, Sup. Gen.
