Letter, 1 February 1884, has an enclosure from Maraquita to Stephen, in the words of Lizzie `to show how well she is, the only thing is that she is not always so'
Letter, [February 1884] remarks that Maraquita wears out the priests who attend her
Another letter [February 1884] states that the stronger Maraquita becomest he more she resists her food, `She has been out of her mind since the 1st October of course' and adds `she cannot be got off her knees as the Blessed Sacraments is under her flesh. She does not know anyone more than the first minute'.
