From sr Agnès to Céline - August 25, 1891

Little Céline,

Have you been to Mrs. Dedouit’s to ask her for further details? But don’t reply until you’ve taken this letter, if not don’t forget to go and fetch the answer before leaving, because I have asked her several things. We are sending you a little letter and some pictures for our poor Father! How sweet, and at the same time painful, is his memory!... Give him a thousand kisses for us…

What a delicious desert you sent us, the refectory was filled with the fragrance, thank you, you shouldn’t have gone to so much trouble. You did quite enough sending one to our darling Mother. (As the refectory was “filled with the fragrance” could the desert have been melons? Céline had already given some for Mother Marie de Gonzague’s “little feast day” on 15th August. It would appear, then, that she did so again, perhaps to mark the feast day of St. Louis, in memory of Mr. Martin.) [r° tv] A thousand times thank you my petit Célin! The light picture is an oak-leaf.

Hello to everyone; and Léonie?
