    Jesus. Mary. & Joseph. Teresa Mount Carmel. 30th April. 1860. My very dear Brother, I feel strongly inspired to recommend myself in a special manner to your good prayer's begging that you will make moments for me in your Masses between the 3rd and 13th of next month, when I hope to have the happiness of making a Retreat. I on my part will give you a share in all my Communion's [illegible] and pray earnestly for all your intentions. My dear Brother Rev Mother wishes you to accept this small cap,[End Page 1] which is light for the Summer, our weather is so changeable it is necessary to have some protection. My dear Brother you were no doubt like us, much shocked at hearing of the death of Father Blox. Dr Keating was his Physician, and Sr Ignatius? heard the particular's from her Son. It seem's that from some time he had a presentiment that he would not live long, and came out of Retreat last week when he said that he was ready to die. On Sunday he assisted at St. Patrick's. On Wednesday was attacked with Epileptic convulsion. And died on Friday morning. His agony was most heartrending, I trust it was his Purgatory and that now he is in heaven. My dear Brother. I hope our Blessed Lady will do a great deal for you, and those under your charge. It is very[End Page 2] refreshing to learn of the rapid progress you are making, for I learn that lately that you have purchased two Churches, but not where they were-- One I hear is for the Germans a very agreeable surprise to me to think that in time, in all probability you will have the Redemptionist Father’s in the Diocese, My dear Brother you must not forget the measure for the case of the holy [Gils.?] If you are not coming on soon, could you not send me the sizes on paper in a letter, if not too much trouble. I was glad to learn from a letter from sister Ellen last week that all were well. Our Community are enjoying their usual health and beg a remembrance in your good prayers. Give my love to all at home when you write them. Pray for me-- Antonia. of the Purification. D.C.U.[End Page 3]
