VIE-53 Life
Thérèse and her father with Bishop Hugonin - wash by Charles Jouvenot.

I had hoped that Papa would speak; however, he told me to explain the object of our visit to the Bishop. I did so as eloquently as possible and his Excellency, accustomed to eloquence, did not appear touched by my reasons; in their stead a single word from the Father Superior would have been much better, but I didn’t have it and this did not help me in any way.
