You will be no doubt surprised at receiving another letter from me. As you are already aware, the petition of the Rt. Rev. Bp. of Springfield has been received at Rome and our Most Illustrious Archbishop has been communicated with by the Cardinal Prefect of Propaganda asking His Grace’s opinion concerning the affair. The Archbp. has written to Rome and now that the matter is fully entered, His Grace has too much respect for the authority of Rome to interfere until Rome has decided.
In relation to your trouble, my dear Sister, I have now to say that I command you to remain in the House in which you now reside, until you are notified either by me or by His Grace the Archbp. of Kingston to do otherwise. This I say to you in view of the action taken by the Rev. Dr. Beaven whose interference in the internal government of my religious subjects, I do not recognize.
