Abstract: Letter from Nano Nagle to Miss [Eleanor] Fitzsimons. Nagle reflects on herself and believes she has many faults. She compares the former novice mistress in the Ursuline monastery in Paris to the mustard seed in the Gospel, and expresses hope that the Cork foundation will succeed with her at the helm. She reports on sending boys to the West Indies on missionary work and mentions that the children are brought up to be fond of instructing. She also assures Miss Fitzsimons that she knows that she will take diligent care of the young ladies (novices) and requests her to convey her compliments to the superior, novice mistress, former novice mistress, and young ladies. Nagle tells Fitzsimons that she does not feel fatigue in relation to the school and requests the novice not to be uneasy about her physical health, though she does suffer a great deal in mind.
