Dear little Aunt,

Your very little daughter comes to join her feeble voice to the delightful concert her big sisters are making heard on the occasion of your feast.

What remains for me to wish you, dear Aunt? ... I feel that after all the wishes addressed to you I have only to say with all my heart: "Amen!..."

I repeat this to you every year, on earth I find no words capable of expressing the sentiments of my soul, so I am happy to join my three older sisters and especially our dear Benjamin in offering you my feast day wishes.

I do not have time to write you at length, dear little Aunt, but I am certain you will read all the feelings of affection that overflow from my heart.

On the day of your feast, I will offer my Communion for you and for our dear Grandmamma.

I beg you, dear Aunt, to give kisses to all whom I love, especially to dear Uncle, and I ask him to give you a thousand other kisses for your little daughter.

Thérèse of the Child Jesus rel. carm. ind.
