Excerpt from My Life in the Convent: Or the Marvellous Personal Experiences of Margaret L. Shepherd (Sister Magdalene Adelaide), Consecrated Penitent of the Arno's Court Convent, Bristol, England

Almost immediately after my father's death my mother sent me to the Convent School, a branch of which was in Agra, and another ln Simla. My parents at my birth had dedicated me to God. It was the earnest desire of both bet'oie they died that I should, if I lived, become a nun; and probably it was with this object in View that I was sent at such a tender age to school; so that my earliest recollections are associated with the black-robed Sisters, and the quiet hush of convent life; and side by side with the sweet-faced image of my mother rises up that of gentle Sister Agatha, who specially cared for me, Between these two souls there seemed a bond of deep love. My mother never said much about my father, but whilst in her presence one felt impressed that she had undergone some great sorrow. How deep that sorrow was to her (as a Catholic) I learned in after years, whilst her soul was hovering on the borders of eternity; and then she only divulged it to me under obedience to her confessor, who hoped it would be an inducement to me to enter a religious life; and the shadow that rested on my mother's life has entered and cast its re?ection on mine. And to-night, many who judge me harshly would feel more sympathy for my shortcomings if they knew the struggle I have had to undergo all these years.
