We recd a letter from a young lady in the West who wishes to join us & requested an immediately reply. We know her very well & by the advice of our sisters I proceed? on your permission & have accepted her - I trust you will approve of what I have done. One of our Laysisters is unable to work at present - & Sr Rose is suffering a little too - I am sorry to see that the Prioress of Carmelite Convent [End Page 1] has resigned her charge - I wrote to her last night. Srs Ursula and Augusta are as well as usual & hoped you would return from Cheraw thru' Columbia but Revd J OConnell told us you intended returning to Charleston soon theefore I scarcely expected you.

My respects to Revd Dr Corcoran & friends of our Commty. Revd Father Oconnell has kindly offered to be the bearer of this to you or I would wait longer & write more legibly.
