Nano Nagle writing to Miss Mulally

Abstract: Copy letter from Nano Nagle to Teresa Mulally welcoming Mulally and Miss (Ann) Corballis' return to health and expressing hope that they will accept the Rule of the Sisters of the Charitable Instruction; if it is not God's will that Mulally and her companions will take vows, they can still rely on the Sisters in Cork to do all in their power to establish a foundation in "the metropolise". Nagle refers to "many disagreeable circumstances", the convent under construction in Cork which she hopes will attract young ladies with substantial dowries, and the reception of a young aspirant of great merit.
