Your application to be admitted as a member of our Novitiate was duly received, carefully considered and a very favorable decision arrived at in your regard. I shall indeed be most happy to receive you into the “Religious Cradle” of this Institute of Sisters of Charity, in the strong hope that you may become a fervent and devoted subject. I need hardly tell you, that you have also the good wishes and prayers of the Sisters for the accomplishment of this important undertaking.
How soon would you wish to enter? If you intend spending any time at home, I shall send you a list containing the different articles required for a postulant, that you may be preparing your trousseau. Should you prefer leaving home at once you shall be given time to prepare everything after your entrance. Let me know what your intention is and then I shall know just what to advise.
Earnestly commending you to the intercession of our “Lady of Mercy” whose feast we to-day celebrate,
