The 16 November 1895

                My dear little Aunt,

                Your little girl comes to mingle her weak voice with the delightful concert that her big sisters play on the occasion of your party.
                What remains for me to wish for you, my dear Aunt?... I feel that after all the wishes which have been addressed to you, I have only to say with all my heart: "So be it- he!..."
                I repeat it to you every year, on earth I cannot find words capable of expressing the feelings of my soul, so I am happy to unite myself with my three eldest and especially with our darling Benjamin to offer you my best wishes. festive.
                I don't have time to write to you any longer, my darling little Aunt, but I'm sure you'll guess all the feelings of tenderness that overflow from my heart.
                On your feast day I will offer my Communion for you and for our dear Grandmother.
                I beg you, my dear Aunt, to shower all those I love with kisses, especially my dear Uncle, and I charge him to give you a thousand more kisses for your little daughter.

Thérèse of the Child Jesus rel.carm.ind.
