MARTIN Thérèse, Sister Thérèse of the Child Jesus


October 8-15 (?) 1888
My dear King,

I would like to write you a long letter, but I am retired, that is impossible for me. You don't know how much your little Queen loves you!... Needing to send a letter to the King's daughter, Princess Leonie, I thought I could only get my message to her through the King himself , so that's why I'm addressing "His Grandeur le Roi de France et de Navarre". If her dignity does not appear in the eyes of men, I know very well that in Heaven she will appear in the eyes of God, then the least of the elect will be like the head of a numerous people, and my King, oh! which place !...

Your little Queen Th. of the Child Jesus.
