Our Sisters left Vannes with the blessing of our venerable Bishop, together with a letter for Your Highness. Their first trial on Canadian soil was their inability to reach you, Monsignor; they had hoped to fulfill this duty as soon as the rigors of winter would allow them to do so.
I am confident that if you authorize them to remain in your diocese to work for the glory of God by teaching christian education, I would be happy to increase the number of sisters according to the needs of the population.
Would it be premature, Monsignor, to ask, even now, for the favor of your assuming the leadership of our small newly born community of St. Adelaide? It would be the guarantee of God's blessing and of the success of our work in the Rimouski Diocese.
Please accept, Monsignor, the expression of the religious and deep respect with which I am honored to be, of Your Highness, the humble servant in Our Lord Jesus Christ. (RCG)
