|MERCY CONVENT, ABBEYFEALE.|

The three happy aspirants after evangelical perfection resolved to become spouses of Christ and imitators of Maryto devote the remainder of their days to the education of youthful innocents, to bring them up in the ways of usefulness, virtue and religionto be in reality Sisters of Mercy, by soothing the anguish of disease, ministering to the cravings of want, and cheering, by their holy presence, the last moments of suffering humanity.
