Nano Nagle writing to Miss Mulally

Abstract: Letter from Nano Nagle to Teresa Mulally apologising for not replying to her letter sooner and expressing regret that her precarious finances would not allow her undertake a foundation in St. Michan's Parish, Dublin. She hopes that Mulally lives long enough to see the Sisters of Charitable Instruction established in that city some day. Letter highlights importance of word of mouth as Miss Fitzsimons has updated Nagle on Mulally's health. Nagle reports that the lady recommended by Mulally has settled in happily, and offers to pay for Miss Corballis to visit Cork for respite. She informs Mulally that she has dismissed some of her lay teachers as they were neglecting the children and taught "only for bread". She communicates her aspirations for the nuns, “wan thing I am resolv’d to make a rule, among us, is that we never dine abroad, or visit or go ab[road] only to the chaple, the schools or business…I hope we will show the world, that nothing makes us go out only when charity oblige us”.
