Nano Nagle writing to Miss Mulally

Abstract: Letter from Nano Nagle to Teresa Mulally following the latter's three week visit to Cork. Nagle regrets that her preoccupation with her nieces, who came down from Galway on their way to Cambrai, France, had prevented her from taking full advantage of Mulally's presence. To add to the dilemma, the girls' father, Mr. (Robert) French, had injured his leg in Spa, Southern Netherlands, so could not meet his daughters at Cambrai. She also refers to a prospective postulant who is involved in a lawsuit against a family member who has spent part of her dowry. Nagle reports that she has asked her sister, Mrs. (Elizabeth) French, to prevail upon her friends, the Bellews, to release some of a hoped-for bequest left by Mrs. Elizabeth Coppinger, Rossmore, Cork.
