Excerpt from Message

Dear Mere Lambin – I wish you were here – French is a necessity for enjoyment. I visited Rue St. Dominic and realized how fortunate we are in all ways in the USA. I mest dear Mere Cathoire and Mother Brady from Manhattenville. There are only 4 teaching nuns here! They do not speak English. I will be happy to see you and please give my love to all. God help you – love from Claire
