From Sister Marie of the Sacred Heart to Céline. End of May (?) 1889. bis

I haven’t much redcurrant syrup left, when you come would you kindly bring me a bottle, as well as the armchair cover. Whatever you do, don’t forget. When the redcurrants are ripe I will claim some for the Carmel.

See you soon darling little sister, we’ll soon see [v°] the cloudless feast, we’ll soon see the beautiful day that has no evening! All things pass very, very quickly; all things are nothing but a momentary shadow. Let’s not take our eyes off the port…

1Term of endearment.
