"I am very sad but well resigned. I bear with enough courage your absence by the hope that far from me you will use with fruit this time which is so dear to me, for it is not by evaluations that one can count what I suffer far from you since it is my life which is worn out in the desire to see you.

May I see you tonight for a little while. May I be certain that you have not stopped thinking about me for a single moment during this long day, which you tell me quite sincerely if you have used it all at work, and I will regain the patience and courage to wait for the end of your work. Farewell a thousand kisses "...
