To her cousin Josephine Perier, Baronesse de Savoye-Rollin

As seen at Villa Duchesne / Oak Hill School

October 17, 1837 ~ Philippine writes to her cousin Josephine, "The author of the Imitation says that those who travel to distant lands rarely sanctify themselves; and elsewhere, that change of residence deceives many. I had hoped to do out here in America something for the glory of God and the salvation of His children, and now I find myself with hands as empty - and perhaps not so clean - as when I was in my little room on our Mountain of Love at Sainte Marie."
