Scope and Contents

Former student of Mother Teresa Sewall, Asia writes three letters about her life in both England and the Continent; she compares religious environment of both. English are "a cold bigoted people" and so intolerant of Catholics and so bitter about Catholics and Ritualists that France is a welcome change and like a different world, where processions and devotions are frequent and sustaining of faith. Narrates beautiful story of daughter's exercise of love of poor, creating a doll lottery of their own toys.
