Rev'd Mother

Your letter bearing me such good news is to hand this 16 p.m. I am indeed pleased to hear that Catherine is with you and hope she will there remain.

If I had the names and addresses of those girls in Montreal it would be my great pleasure to write them words of encouragement. I expect to go to Kingston on the 26 inst to attend the conference; if such takes place you could then hand me their names and addresses or at your earliest convenience as may suit you to, and I beg if you consider it any trouble to do anything within my power for you & Community.

I return to Montreal in the second week of June to settle up any mission work; I could then see those girls and explain matters.

We must get candidates for that Institute. There are many good girls in Montreal who would be pleased to enter. I shall give the work my attention.

Faithfully in Christ
J.J. Kelly, Pro.
