Concerning the children of whom you spoke, I cannot tell you how pleased I am to know, that through the kindness of Sir John Thompson they will soon be amid surroundings more suitable to their tender age.
I will take the children most willingly, the infant of five months old is the only difficulty in the way; I will be obliged to place her in care of some one outside until she is able to walk for the Sisters do not assume the care of little ones until then.
You asked me about terms for their maintenance, well my dear Miss Fahey, I think it better to leave that to the Premier. If the Government will give anything for these poor little ones I shall be grateful, but in any case, I will take them.
Hoping soon to have your little charges added to the band of happy little ones at the Providence.
