October 30, 1820 ~ Philippine Duchesne writes to Mother Barat, "The loss of many religious in France may make it more difficult for you to send us the help we ask for, but you will make an effort for your poor American mission which tries to stretch out its arms but cannot reach across the ocean to you. As for myself, do with me just as you wish. All other desire except that of God's Holy Will is extinguished in me, and my recent illness has rooted me still deeper in indifference."
