From sr Francoise-Therese (Leonie) to Mother Agnes of Jesus – August 28, 1915

28th August 1915

Beloved little Mother,

I believe I’m dreaming when I think that, in a few days, I’ll be able to throw myself into your arms. As soon as I arrive, I’ll kneel to receive your blessing and then I’d like to hug all three of my little sisters at once . . . .

One of our Turn Sisters will drive me to Lisieux. How happy I would be if I could be with you for 8th September, the anniversary of our dear little saint’s profession.

See you soon, and before having had a taste of the Homeland! Would you inform Jeanne when everything has been decided, so that I can give her a hug before returning to Caen?
