MARTIN Thérèse, Sister Thérèse of the Child Jesus
DELATROËTTE Jean-Baptiste Canon


13-30 January 1888

Mister the preist,

I thank you very much for the beautiful image that you were kind enough to send me by Sr Agnès, I will keep it preciously as a first memory that will always be dear to me.
Please, Monsieur le Curé, bless by far the smallest of your children; she is currently working to prepare her soul for the life of Carmel. I know it's a great grace to be called so young, but I won't be ungrateful and the good Lord will give me, I hope, the means to be faithful to him as I desire with all my heart.
I humbly ask you, Father, not to forget in your prayers

Your toddler T

(PS) Here is a short note from Monsieur Révérony that I asked Céline to pass on to you.
