Daily Mass

Mt. St. Marys,
Sun. 22nd Nov. ‘70

Dear Mum & Dad,

Well exams tomorrow.

Bad news… Someone has just told me that Br. Sylvester died 5 minutes ago. Collapsed this morning – it’s four o’clock now. (Was given the last sacraments).

Had better go now. Br. Anthony (who was at Novitiate with me last year) collapsed yesterday & went into hospital but his condition is satisfactory.

I think we go into Grand Silence until after the funeral.

Will write later…

Love from

(P.S. Br. Sylvester’s the Silverstream one at Tony’s time).
