Notes: Harriet came with Cecelia to Baltimore, not after her. Harriet was Cecelia's senior and acted as her companion, their young brother Samuel accompanied both her children (- De B.) only natural [affection]? "According to the laws of the Church, which are so dear to me, I would be unable to assume any engagement which would come between me and my duties toward my children. My dear children have the first claim and it will remain inviolable. That is why I made the solemn promise in the presence of our good Archbishop Carroll [and] also my own conscience to prefer the advantages of my children to all else." Archives, S.G.C. "Only her active surveillance and her continued efforts could succeed in preserving her children from Protestant influences." Mother Seton refers to spiritual advantages chiefly. She had refused the Howard's offer. -De B. p.322.
Description: 98 pages : frontispiece, plates, facsimile ; 18 cm
Responsibility: by a Daughter of charity of St. Vincent de Paul, St. Joseph's College, Emmitsburg, Maryland. "It seems to me quite apparent, from the request - to have Sisters from France and from various little passages in Mother Seton's letters that it was the intention all along to be united to the Sisters of Charity in Europe and thus become true, legitimate children of St. Vincent de Paul." At this time the Archbishop had finished his "Memoirs" (published in '69), all the Emmitsburg archives with their wealth of information had been graciously placed at the the Archbishop's disposal. He was contemplating writing a history of the Sisterhood.""From Elizabeth Seton by De Barberey. Mr. Casper, p.66. hardship, p.72".
