Oct. 1893 – To General Superior Sr. M. Edward, Kingston ON from Sr. M. of Providence, Sisters of Providence of Holyoke MA

Holy Family Institute,
Brightside, Holyoke.
Oct. 1893
Rev. Mother M. Edward, S.G.
House of Providence, Kingston
Rev. Mother:
Your demand for payment of Note & Interest was duly received and not wholly unexpected. Owing to the unusual stringency of the money market it is impossible to obtain loans at present. There is plenty of money in the banks, but it is held in anticipation of a call from Depositons. The indications are that within a short time Business will have resumed its Normal Status and then we will be most willing to cancel, at the earliest opportunity this indebtedness.
Very Respectfully
Sister M. of Providence
Per S.M.U.
