In the event, Fransoni sent her back to St. Leonards where the picture remained until tranferred to Hastings in 1976. The other two panels were never painted."

Mother Mary Frances Tholhieust (sp?), being Rev. Mother General; this picture was given to that Neuilly foundation by R. Mary Frances that this house may possess a momento of Rev.

Mother Theresa returned to England) - Later on, M.M. S. Maurice became the superior of Neuilly. During the second World War this picture was rescued and carefully preserved by a friend...returned to us and until the closing of Neuilly in 1975 was always hanging in the front hall of the house as it had been from 1921 to 1940. - Sr. Marie Pierre Rubeaux, SHCJ.
