I accept your agreement for maintenance of Mrs. Quinn at the Institution, namely $6.00 per month. But, I much regret that the admission of two old ladies from Carleton and one from Prescott a few days ago leaves us without a vacancy and I must ask you to delay Mrs. Quinn’s coming until you hear from me; you will, in all probability have but a short time to wait as one of the old ladies is at present in a dying condition. The very first vacancy I shall notify you. In the meantime I trust that you shall not be inconvenienced and that Mrs. Quinn will be contented among her friends.
Nov. 13, 1894 – To Mr. Murray, Brockville from General Superior Sr. M. Edward, Kingston ON
