To: St. Madeleine Sophie Barat

St. Rose Philippine Duchesne

July 21, 1841 ~  Philippine writes to St. Madeleine Sophie, "At last we have reached the country of our desires, the tribe and village of Potawatomi at Sugar Creek. There are no difficulties here except for people who worry too much about tomorrow. We have two fine cows, we can plant a good vegetable garden, and a house is being built for us, so what can we complain about?"
