To: Father Charles De La Croix

Potawatomi Indians

August 7, 1842 ~ Mother Duchesne writes to Father De La Croix, "As I lead a very solitary life here at St. Charles now, I can employ my time in making reparation for the past and in preparing for death; but I cannot put out of my mind the thought of the Indians, and my ambition carries me even to the Rockies.  I can only adore the designs of God Who has taken from me the thing I had so long desired."
