1885: Duke of Norfolk

Don Bosco wrote to the duke’s chaplain, asking him to sponsor a collection in London for the Sacred Heart Church in Rome. The chaplain replied in the negative. But the Duke wrote to Don Bosco sending him an offering. …We have heard too of the great works you are carrying on and the account of them has filled us with great interest. May I ask you to accept the enclosed offering of £40.00 as a small help to your great undertaking. We both most earnestly commend our son’s health to you and yours as an intention for your continued prayers, and we only wish that we could properly tell you how very deeply thankful we are.
I have the honour to be,

Your very faithful servant,

Norfolk (BM XV, 466)
