From sr Marie of the Sacred Heart to Céline - October 28 (?), 1891.

My petit Célin1
I can’t help but come and write a little note to you although I hardly have the time. You are so kind. If only you knew how sorry I was to see [1 v°] a pot of jelly arrive. We enjoyed it immensely. Agnès of Jesus scolded me because I had written to you telling you not to send some. Alas! When my letter arrived you had perhaps done everything especially for us. I feel very sad, I fear I caused you trouble.
Meanwhile Our Mother [2 r°] was very touched by these kind thoughts and she thanks you. She is no worse but she is no better either, a mucous membrane fever lasts a very long time.
Farewell my darling little sister, I send you my tender kisses.
M. of the S.H.
I forgot to tell you [2 v°] that our poor Mother has a patient’s wish. If you could, would you get hold of a small bottle of lemonade, the non purgative sort of course. You might not find that here, it doesn’t cost more than fifteen bob because we don’t need a large bottle; that would go to waste.
You forgot the rice seller’s address.
