From Léonie to Céline (fragment) – 30th July 1894

30th July 1894 (fragment)

Dearest little sister,

I have just this minute received your letter. The information you give me is so comforting and does me good. So our revered father has left this sad exile to go to Heaven! How well he must have been received up above… Our Community Mass was said for him this morning and I offered him my Holy Communion. I am so heartbroken that I don’t know what to say.

Now I’m longing to see you. It might not be long before you come to Caen, might it? I’ve so many things to ask you about Papa. How happy he is now to have suffered so much!
