From sr Marie of the Eucharist to her parents (Guérin) - October 4, 1895.

Thank you! thank you! thank you!... for all the treats… You don’t know how touched your little daughter is. If she can’t show her gratitude on earth, you will know how much affection and gratitude she feels in heaven. 

         Today is washing day. If you wanted, you could come and hear us sing between 1 o’clock and half past 1, but if it puts you out, you can come another time. At 3 o’clock, we will have finished washing (the washhouse ran alongside the cloister wall, which was not as high as it is today. It was therefore possible to hear the Carmelites sing as they did the washing together according to a custom of the monastery).

             Your little daughter who cherishes you and eats you up with kisses.
