Estimated Reading Time:


I humbly beg your Charity to take the trouble to let us know if tomorrow after dinner is a suitable time so that I can inform our four sisters. I forgot to mention Sister Anne1 of Saint Paul who, I believe, must be handled gently and Sister Geneviéve2 of the Hotel-Dieu who is now here to rest. She was exhausted from working with the foundlings during the last part of Lent. In this case there will be five or six sisters. At another time, some of the sisters may be missing, so this would enable more than four of them to profit from the instruction which it pleases God to give us by your charity. I remain, Monsieur, your very humble daughter and grateful servant.

  1. Anne Hardemont, see Letter 110.
  2. Geneviéve Poisson entered the community before 1636.
