Quand a lieu votre retraite? Nous avons la nôtre du 16 au 23. Restons unies dans la prière, mes chères Soeurs; je vous embrasse très affectueusement. Je ne sais pas ce que Soeur Marie fabienne va faire; Ce sera comme moi sans doute! Ce 3 Août 31. Soeur Marie-Henriette." Translated message reads, " Mr Fauville's reply concerning your project was rather unfavourable and we are not planning to insist any longer. I therefore ask you not to send your other courses; do you wish me to send back to you the ones I have? I do not doubt that your vacation has been very comforting for all standpoint of view. When is your retreat due? Ours will be held from 16 to 23. Let us remain united in prayer, my dear sisters, I kiss you affectionately. I do not know what Sister Marie-Fabienne is going to do; most likely the same as me. This August 3, 1931."
