Farjon, Sister Theresa of St. Xavier
New Orleans, (Louisiana)

to Bishop (Luis Penalver y Cardenas
New Orleans, Louisiana)

Sister Theresa, Superior of the Monastery of the Ursulines, reminds Penalver that opposite their church there is unused land of the royal domain which Penalver had given to Rafael Ramos, comptroller of their hospital. The monastery needing space 20 feet wide and 120 deep on which to build a house for their chaplain, she begs Penalver to give it to them. The chaplain lives in the curial house many blocks away, at night it is hard to arrive quickly in case of need and there is difficulty in coming to say Mass and give instruction to the young. They are not able to buy land out of their means.
