I cannot tell you how sorry I am to hear of your illness, we heard of you not feeling well some time ago but did not think it would take such a serious turn; may God grant you will continue to improve and that nothing else will set in. I have been and shall continue to pray for you every day for a speedy recovery.
I would like to be able to do something for you but it is my lot to never wait on those I would like to, but perhaps I might not receive any merit if I had a worldly motive.
I thought I would be going home for retreat but I am not among the number named I am not very much disappointed, only I would like to see you, as you have ever been a true Mother to me.
As you know I collected in Prescott. The Vicar asked for me; he was very kind to us. Miss Masterson was in the hospital at the time; no doubt he will think it strange I did not wait on Ellen. I would like to for his sake; Sister says she improves slowly. I am expecting my Sister (Mrs. Jennings) to see me; she has been in New York all winter. My Mother sent me a nice little watch this winter; it will be useful in caring the sick.
We did not have any slack time this winter at all and the Sisters have all been very well.
Dear Mother I shall close by sending love and best wishes for a speedy recovery and that God may spare you to the Community for many years to come.
