Oct. 24, 1893 – To General Superior Sr. M. Edward, Kingston ON from C.F. Gildersleeve

Oct. 24, 1893
To the Lady Superior
House of Providence, Kingston
Dear Madam,

I ascertained in conversation with the Captain of the Hero to-day that it had become the practice on the Steamer not charge freight on the contributions collected from the friends of the House of Providence. I may have authorized it at some time, but do not remember of having done so, however, that may be, as it is contrary to the practice of Transportation Companies. Any freight in future will be charged for.

I will be glad to furnish Passes as usual for the passage of the Ladies under your charge when you desire to send them on their Mission.

Very sincerely yours,
C.F. Gildersleeve, Manager
