From Marie Guérin to Jeanne La Néele - January 10, 1891.

Lisieux 10th January 91
Dear little Jeanne,

We have just received your letter, it seems our poor Francis has a bad cold. It’s not surprising, imagine that here the thermometer is down to fourteen degrees. Francis must have many patients, we hear people complaining of illnesses on all sides. [1 v°] As for our household everyone is recovered, I took a lemonade yesterday, and today it’s Céline’s turn, I really believe we all had the beginnings of Influenza.
Yesterday we received visits from Mr. and Mrs. Edouard Puchot and Doctor Notta and his wife. We decided to have visitors since, with the weather we are having, we can host in the small living room that’s well heated. Only Léonie doesn’t attend the visits because of all the spots she has around her mouth. Dear little Jeanne, I thank you for the warm reception you gave me during the days I spent in Caen. I enjoyed myself very much, and the following day, it seemed very strange returning to my little routine. It’s nothing but I’m still a little annoyed with Francis for saying I was happier to leave than to arrive, well I’m beginning to forgive him. Farewell dear little Jeanne, I send you and Francis all my love.
Your little sister Marie.
Léonie and Céline send their love too.
