From Marie du Sacré-Cœur to Thérèse - January 1 , 1887

From Marie of the Sacred Heart to Thérèse.

January 1, 1887

My dear Thérèse,

Tomorrow you will be fourteen! Your godmother is not forget­ting it, and so she is coming to wish you a Happy Birthday. If only I had something to give you! But I have nothing except this little picture which I like very much and which I'm sending you for your feast.

With it, I'm sending some Spanish licorice and a beautiful blue ribbon to make you laugh. Adieu, my darling. Always love good little Jesus, who is smiling at you from His crib and who extends His little arms to you in order to hug you tightly.

Your Marie, who loves you with her whole heart.
