Nano Nagle writing to Miss Fitzsimons

Abstract: Letter from Nano Nagle to Miss [Eleanor] Fitzsimons expressing her pleasure at receiving another letter from her and hoping they will meet in person soon. Nagle mentions her delight that Fitzsimons will be professed in Cork, and that the former novice mistress of the Ursuline monastery in Paris has consented to lead the new foundation in Ireland. She notes that [Francis] Moylan will do everything in his power to assist with this foundation. Nano is troubled to hear of her cousin's (Margaret Nagle) "histirick" or propensity to develop violent fits. The issue is causing some disagreement within the Ursuline community, who are under the impression that the disorder is contagious.
