Abstract: Letter from Nano Nagle to Miss [Eleanor] Fitzsimons noting the writer's anxiety at not receiving letters from Fitzsimons or Dr. Moylan. Nagle comments that the proposed date of the novices’ arrival in Cork has not yet been fixed and discusses the problem of finding a professed religious to act as superior. A letter has been sent to Paris seeking a “categorical answer” as to whether the intended journey to Cork will go ahead. The author offers Miss Fitzsimons financial advice and recalls her own monetary woes, she notes that “money is at present so scarce, and such a run on the Bankers in this kingdome, that people cant get what is due to them”. Nagle shows her endearing concern for Mary Kavanagh, who is now teaching the poor children of Paris, and communicates her disappointment that the Ursulines will not come to Cork that winter.
