Therese's correspondence LT 260 – To Mr. and Mrs. Guérin – 24-25 (?) July 1897

MARTIN Thérèse, Sister Thérèse of the Child Jesus
GUERIN Isidore
GUERIN Zélie, Mrs. Louis Martin


24-25 (?) July 1897
Little Thérèse thanks her dear Aunt very much for the lovely letter she sent her, she also thanks her dear Uncle for the desire he had to write to her and her little sister Léonie who delighted her with her abandon and her true affection.
Little Thérèse sends gifts to all her loved ones (alas! they are flowers as ephemeral as herself...)
(Very serious Explanations for the distribution of the Flowers)
There is a Thought for my Uncle, a Thought for my Aunt (not counting all those that bloom for them in the little garden of my heart).
The two Rosebuds are for Jeanne and Francis, the one who is alone is for Léonie.
With her Flowers little Thérèse would like to send all the Fruits of the Holy Spirit to her dear Parents, especially that of Joy!
