From sr Agnès of Jesus to Céline - Late 1891 or late 1892 ? 


Darling little Céline,

Would you send me a piece of black card on which to stick a photo of Mother Geneviève. One Sister discovered two photos on hers, she unstuck one of them and wants to give it to her family; it would please her if you gave her the card before New Year’s Day.

Tell Marie that our Mother was very touched by the oysters and little biscuits! If only you knew how fervent our darling Mother seems during her retreat! She is praying for us!...

Darling petit Célin1, don’t give us any peas on Saturday, if you want to give me something that will please me greatly, send me a few almonds and oysters for Our Mother… And if Marie has an opportunity to make some little lean pâtés, let her not miss it. [r° tv] Petit Célin, how I love you, I sobbed the other night because I dreamt you were dead… My eyes were all teary when I awoke.

It appears Papa has not been well?... It causes me sorrow!!! Yet Mother Geneviève is protecting him… and I have faith!
