Chronicles of Notre Dame du Lac
Edward Sorin, CSC -- Translated by John M. Toohey, CSC, 1895
pg 103       all members of the chapter.  For his part F. Sorin can never 
             entirely forget the annoyance that it gave him.
                  Some days afterwards F. Saunier, who had an obedience for 
             Louisville or St. Mary's, Ky. left the lake and started for 
             Kentucky.  Hardly had he reached there when he wrote for four 
             Sisters, whom he did not get, however, until he had received an 
             authorization from the Rev. Father.  Then the Sisters went, toward 
             the end of October.  Six weeks afterwards he got Bro. Theodulus in 
             the same manner.
                  Without pretending here to give the history of the Kentucky 
             affair; it is necessary to say something about it in order the 
             make the chronicles of the Lake complete.  From first to last one 
             cannot fail to be surprised that a house of such importance could 
             be carried on by such a long series of misunderstandings, or, let 
             us say the word, of gross blunders of administration.
