Miss Wheeler hopes that Miss Irwin has passed on her letter. Considers that Mother Cecilia may be treating all the women as she does her nuns, but the women have not sworn a vow of poverty and obedience. Wishes Miss Wheeler well for Christmas and says that if Miss Irwin asks her to go and see her then she must.

Teresa Bragger to Miss Wheeler: Are things better? If no change then she will write to the Bishop

T Bragger asks Miss Wheeler to write and let her know if things are better. If not she will write to the Bishop. Sorry to know that Miss Irwin will not go to the convent any more. Go see Fr Flanagan often. Fr Davidson is controlled by Rev Mother Cecilia and probably thinks she is behaving honourably.

Teresa Bragger to Miss Wheeler: An individual's concerns re care and Nuns at Aldeburgh; Fr Davidson unable to help

Miss Wheeler has written to Teresa Bragger about the mistreatment she has had at the hands of the nuns in Aldeburgh, Eaton House. T Bragger commiserates with her plight, cannot understand why she has been placed so far away and not in a Cottage Hospital in Aldeburgh. She recognises the overbearing behaviour of the Reverend Mother (Cecilia) and the injustice of it all. Understands that talking to Fr Davidson is not helpful since he is completely subdues by the Rev. Mother. She suggests writing to the Bishop, talking to Fr Flanagan and moving to a boarding house in Leiston. She will write back via Mrs Irwin to avoid the nuns getting hold of the letter.
