Nano Nagle writing to Miss Fitzsimons

Abstract: Letter sent from Bath, England, written while Nano is visiting her brothers there. She alludes to previous correspondence which detailed the foundation of her first schools in Cork, and how she withheld this from her family who until lately were uninformed of her work. While aware that her actions run contrary to Penal Laws, she is determined to continue. Nagle also writes that she has recently objected to a suggestion put forth by Mr. [Bryan Keating], merchant, South Mall, Cork, and Dr. [John] Butler, Bishop of Cork, to seek Protestant approval for the new Ursuline foundation in Cork; she leaves it to Miss [Eleanor] Fitzsimons to judge.
