I was reading something and there was this sentence.

On receiving a letter from Bogle, Lady Tichborne sent enough money to pay for the fare back to England.

What does on mean in this sentence?

It means 'when she received the letter'. Presumably Lady T. sent the money in response to a request in the letter.
