I am going to ask you to do me a great favor and I hope you shall be able to comply: we have a girl about 12 years an imbecile, and we wish to place her in the Asylum in Orillia; but as our means will not permit two Sisters to go with her, I thought if she were sent to Toronto on the same train you went on, that you would kindly meet her and go on with her to Orillia. O course, I will pay all expenses incurred and will be truly grateful to you.
The child is perfectly harmless and just like a little child, speaks plainly and all that, but is not wise enough to be trusted alone. I enclose you the letter admitting her, which you will present to the Doctor. Now if you can comply with my request, tell me what morning you could go, and we shall put her in care of the Conductor here; please telegraph your reply and after your return, I shall refund your expenses and hers, from Toronto to Orillia.
Your dear Sister is very well, so are all the other Sisters, and I sincerely trust, my dear Miss McAuley, that you enjoy the same great blessing.
