From Céline to Vital Romet - December 1877.

From Céline to her godfather Vital Romet. Late December 1877 (?)

Dear godfather.

I wish you a happy new year, I would very much like to be able to give you my wishes with an affectionate kiss; but since I am not near [1v°] you I must content myself with doing so from afar.

I often pray to God for him to grant you all the happiness you desire and to keep you in my affection for a very long time.

Dear godfather I like being in Lisieux a great deal I would very much like you to live here too because that [2r°] way I would have the pleasure of often seeing and kissing you.

Accept, dear godfather, the wishes and affection of your little daughter who loves you very much
