Rev. and dear Mother:


I wish you and your community a very happy feast to-morrow, and God’s choicest blessings.


I am to visit Lisieux next month and then I will prepare the letter you ask for. But if you think that will be too late, I will write at once.


I wish to say Mass at the places in Lisieux sanctified by the Little Flower. Will you please send me now a letter of introduction to your nuns there?

With kind wishes, I am

Very faithfully in Xt.

+ D. J. Dougherty.


P.S. Many thanks for the scapular and picture of St. Teresa. I enclose a small gift in honor of the Little Flower.
