Nov. 2, 1892 – To General Superior Sr. M. Edward, Kingston ON from P.M. McMahon

Nov. 2, 1892
Rev. Mother Edward:
There were two Sisters got on board my train on Wednesday afternoon. When I came through collecting tickets, they asked me which was the quickest way or nearest to get to Boston. I told them that they should have taken the train going East as by going West they would have to go via Suspension Bridge. I told them if they took the midnight train going East they would arrive in Boston the next evening. They said they would go West a few stations and wait for the mid-night train. I sold them a ticket to Belleville. I also told them they could remain at the Convent in Belleville. I thought they acted strange. I watched them when they got off, they did not take a cab or bus but went into the “Ladies Waiting Room”.
