My little Guite,
I’m coming again to ask a favor of you.
Would you be so very kind as to give me as soon as possible some white glove (glacé kid) leather; you could give me the cuffs of your long gloves. Please clean it so it will be neat. You’d be doing me a great favor. Tell our Sisters not to deliver it to Our Mother, for I’ll be using it to make something for her feast.
Could you also copy the Salutaris by Gounod for me?
Thank you, my darling Guite, I am keeping my rendezvous with you in the mystery of the Three, pray for you Sabeth who loves you much and feels her soul to be very close to yours.
Saint Elizabeth of the Trinity
Letter 119 to her sister
