Just a word. I believe that it is necessary to attend promptly to this poor girl who has so won the hearts of the local people that rumor has it that they will not accept another if we remove her. She has been seeking advice for a long time from everyone, especially a bachelor club known as the Gentlemen of the Corner from whom she receives delicacies, bottles of wine and p§t£s, and thanks to whom she lives excessively well. I humbly beg you, for the love of God, to reflect on the problems resulting from this terrible situation of which I think I am the cause. I beseech you, Monsieur, to pray to God to ask Him to pardon me, your very humble and most grateful daughter and servant.
