Journal of Mother Duchesne, 1818-1840

August 23, 1819 ~  Mother Duchesne writes in her journal, "It would be very wrong for us ever to lack confidence in Divine Providence after all the proofs we have had of God's care of us: a small sack of rice - about 20 pounds - sufficed for the entire year, and we ate rice frequently.  We did not have to buy coffee or much sweetening, as these were supplied by the kind Ursulines of New Orleans."
