From Marie to Pauline. (Fragment.)

July 11-12 (?), 1881

Papa arrived Saturday morning. Do you know what he brought Thérèse from her little foster brother? Guess if you can.... A magpie! which is being cared for each moment as a child in a cradle. This is Thérèse's sole occupation; she remains whole hours contemplating it in a squirrel cage which Papa bought for her. I'd say it's a doll's house; never have I seen a cage like it.
