Sept. 25, 1894 – To General Superior Sr. M. Edward, Kingston ON from J. Suddaby, Berlin ON

Sept. 25, 1894
Rev. Mother Edward,
House of Providence, Kingston
My dear Mother -

Accept my warmest thanks for the beautiful photo. I have examined it most carefully and think it remarkably good. I intend ordering for it a bracket with a place just below yours for that of Sister Amable.

As you remark, it does indeed call up most vividly the days spent at the House of Providence – days which will always be remembered by me as fraught with pecucliar interest and delight. The gentle spirit pervading the institution and the uniform kindness shown by yourself and all others with whom I came in contact – caused the time to pass like a pleasant dream.

Now that cooler weather has been ushered in, I hope you may be free from those distressing attacks of rheumatism.

Yours in friendship and regard
J. Suddaby
