My dear Sister M. Gabriel
Your Novelty reached me duly and I was glad to see your dear chinography. Many thanks for your dear kind good wishes, which I know well are all stamped with the seal of sincerity; that is what I prize, most of all in this world of change. I spent a happy day indeed as you have probably heard ere this. Nothing was left undone by my little family to make me feel that I had a large share in their love and devotion. And I would be an ungrateful woman did I not respond by being happy with them. I was made particularly grateful at the generous gift Mother General sent for the Bazaar. My admirer on Princess St. sent me a box of lovely roses, and Julie Harty the dear girl sent me a pair of very useful articles. but they must be nameless. As I have so many letters waiting me I will conclude by wishing you a fond good bye.
Your ever-devoted Mother
M.M. Edward
