From sr Genevieve (Celine) to Jeanne La Neele – June 5, 28

   Dear little sister, we are in need of an old prie-dieu for the bedroom in Alençon where Thérèse was born. Could you concede us our Aunt’s one? It was in oak and had a sculpture of Christ’s face on it. I’d be so grateful if you would do us this kindness! If it is at Les Sorbiers, I’ll write to Mr Allez. He might not have lacquered this one white!!! Answer me as soon as you can, because I’m having trouble furnishing Alençon.

   And then there’s poor Mr Houdayer. I think of him day and night and am praying fervently and fondly for all the family. Oh, this earthly exile is full of sorrow, but it prepares us for such a wonderful eternity!

               Your grateful little sister
