Nano Nagle writing to Miss Mulally

Abstract: Letter from Nano Nagle to Teresa Mulally in which she describes taking possession of her convent on 15 July 1780. The women were prevented from moving in immediately because the rear wall of the property had to be broken in order for carts to come in and deliver stones to build a "garden wall for the ladies". Nagle refers to the anti-Catholic Gordon Riots in London and her fear that "the same contagious frenzy may break out in this kingdome". She also discusses her dismissal of Miss Wolf, conveys greetings from Dr. Moylan, sends news of mutual acquaintances, and reports an improvement in her eye condition.
