I have just heard that Your Grace is at home again and now all my hopes are dead!
I clung to the thought that some accident might drive me to a place where I would meet Your Grace. But God did not permit me to have such a consolation.
Your Grace will be pleased to know that the Blessed Sacrament was restored to us on the 4th inst. after an absence of sixty-three days.
I presume Your Grace’s visit in the East has put you in possession of information regarding Bishop O’Reilly’s condition. It is said that a letter was sent him four weeks ago from Rome and one to Your Grace at the same time, saying that the Roman Council, etc. were ready to consider the case. If this be true, surely a decision will soon come.
The malcontents are quiet but determined. Sr. M. of Providence is as usual, keeping up their spirits by assuring them of victory.
