Excerpt from Message

My Dears. This is to show you our new convent and to wish you a good Lent. I. Is the first of three beautiful parlors. One large, one is the Ladies sewing room it is a beauty, with a great pillowed fire place, wood ceiling hardwood floor. Louis XVIII style. II. Is the Study Hall, it was the library in the original idea of the house. Brown leather wall shelf way down. Then a shelf and paneled brown wood, the name I do not know, queen antique looking chandeliers – When we have our new wing, it will be a grand library it is too small for a study hall. All the second floor and two rooms on third floor are classrooms. III. Is the community room where I am writing now, and where we have a pretty good view of the Bay but not the glorious one of 2020 Washington. IV. Are our only community cells – three – the rest of us stow away in class rooms at night or in the attic of the chapel. It is very nice and poverty-like, and these pretty rooms? The outside of the building is gray stone – yellow brick 2nd story – 3rd story and roof of slate – it is very strong and fine. Love to all from Agnes RSCJ
