Nano Nagle writing to Miss Mulally

Abstract: Letter from Nano Nagle to Teresa Mulally indicating that she has set £7 aside to be sent to Dublin. Nagle chides Mulally for falling into dejection, “I dont approve of your disponding so much”, and writes that even if neither of them live to see their work prosper during their lifetimes, hopefully it will succeed after their deaths "and be of universale service to the kingdome". She also describes the reception of a very promising novice and assures Mulally of the community's most affectionate compliments. Whereas all previous letters to Mulally were addressed “Dear Madam”, this last extant letter, written just over a year before Nagle's death, opens with “My Dear's friend”.
