Excerpt from Message

(section IV) My Dears, This is a rather long drawn out affair, so many urgent things always happening. Will you send me please Marguerite Beinbar’s address. I lost her postal from the Los Angeles Hotel. I want to write her about Mary (Smith) Price who is worse off than ever and so brave. She moved there for the husband who is tubercular and she too has been ill. I thought Marguerite’s good heart might find some help for her. I shall try to write a letter before Advent, but if not my best good wishes go with these pretty postals – you ask what I am doing - I know charged with the large girls this year – and at present I have M Coffee’s little class. She is too occupied and I shall not was to give [illegible] up. It is delightful to watch their daily progress and enthusiasm. Love and best wishes, Agnes RSCJ.
