By the grace of God, we have arrived safe and sound in Tours. I have decided to hire a coach to take us to Orleans. I humbly thank you for the use of your carriage. I am returning it to you undamaged, thank God. I hope that the return trip will be just as safe.

I am very anxious to have news of our sisters. Please be so kind, Monsieur, as to ask Sister Turgis1 to write to me about them. I hope that we will reach Orleans Wednesday. However, I shall have to wait until I return to Paris before receiving word. You may be certain of how happy I will be when I receive reassurances about your health because you know, Monsieur, that I am truly your very humble daughter and most grateful servant.

P.S. For a number of reasons I have been obliged to change route here.
