Typed letter signed (‘God bless you M Teresa mc’), thanking the recipient for her letter and for ‘your desire to help the poor’, also adding ‘God gives us joy that we may give, he gives us joy that we may share. First and foremost love begins at home. I appreciate your letter and am glad you realize your role as a woman, wife and mother. There is nobody in the world who needs you more than your family, specially children. It is easier and nice to work among strangers, but it costs to give to our own. My prayer for you […] is that you deepen your love and commitment to your family and give them your best and your all’, one page, some folding marks and creasing, two closed tears to margins, tall 8vo, Missionaries of Charity, Calcutta, 12 December 1987.
