Sr Françoise-Thérèse Martin to her Uncle Mr Guérin

V + J! From our Monastery in Caen on this 2nd February 1906

Dearest Uncle,

You have lavished me with gifts! Ah, how grateful I am for your ever-renewed kindness. Your little Visitandine deeply appreciates it, you know this. Thanks to your generosity, we celebrated our Holy Founder even in the refectory with a lovely, delicious dessert. I’m so spoilt by my dear relatives. I’ve just received a magnificent picture of the Holy Face from my darling sisters for my feast day. I think that our Mother is going to put it in the Choir when it’s framed. The Community is very touched to have been offered such a wonderful keepsake.

I thank little Jeanne for her affectionate letter and for your kind wishes. In reply to her question about my swollen gland it rarely causes me pain, and when it does, it’s only passing. I feel so sure that it’s related to nervousness that I’m not at all concerned by it. Besides, I’m in good health.

Farewell dearest Uncle, and thank you once again. I send all three of you all my love.

Sr Françoise-Thérèse
