RICHARD, BROTHER (James Mulligan)

(Brother Richard, James Mulligan, died July 6, 1878) "This young Brother met an accidental death when bathing in the lake in front of the novitiate. Pious and gentle, he was a model among the novices. He worked hard at the harvest, but did not complain. The very eve of the accident he had said: "We will rest in heaven, I do not wish to stay long in Purgatory. He had been to confession the same day and received Holy Communion." Granger Memo.
