From sr Marie of the Eucharist to Isidore and Mme Guérin. (Extracts.) - December 20- 25, 1895

.. .What a great surprise I had this afternoon!... What to do to thank you. Had you only seen my joy, I was unable to control myself.... The reception of the case was an odd scene: all the little novices around the case, the dormitory was filled with our cries. Who would unpack the case: one was shouting: "I see a hand," another: "Oh! a pretty little head," and Sister Marie of the Sacred Heart was objecting and crying out in despair: "You will see, they will break it, they will not be satisfied until they do!"

It was a real comedy, or to express it better an impossible uproar. We could not be quiet until we each gave vent to our joy.

I say a thousand times "thank you" and send the best kisses from your little daughter.

And the little novices send their thanks to generous Papa and Mamma.
