From sr Agnès of Jesus to Céline - Late 1890

J.M.J.T.
Dear little Céline,

I’m sending the book of Chronicles to Léonie. It’s the history of the founding of the Carmel of France, a very interesting work. There are I don’t know how many volumes. The Father said in his letter: “I regret that the little soul you mentioned is prevented from confiding in Céline. Poor Child! I am going to particularly pray for her (Marie Guérin).”  
[1 v°] Farewell my darling. Let’s love God with our whole Hearts… Life is but a flash! As St. Teresa said: “We have but two hours to live and then afterwards, what recompense is ours!”

Above all seek to please no one but the King of Virgins!... because when he walks in the valley of his lilies and sees one whose corolla is leaning in a direction other than his own, his eyes cloud over with tears.
