From Céline to her sister Marie - Early October 1877.

From Céline to her sister Marie. Early October (?) 1877.

(Marie is her school “mistress”)

Today I’m going to learn my catechism properly to please you. Yesterday evening Louise made me a pretty blue dress for my little doll, and today she is going to make me a white one. Thérèse Lehoux said that on Thursday (Thursday 11th October?) she will stay at home so that I can play with her on the other day. I went to fetch Thérèse Lehoux at Saint Joseph’s all the little girls were playing but there were hardly any pupils; there were at least twenty of them counting the little and the big ones.

Good bye dear little Marie with a kiss from the bottom of my heart your little pupil who loves you very much
