To her sister Euphrosine, Madame Jean-Joseph Jouve

The Chateau de Vizille, a country home of the family of
Saint Rose Philippine Duchesne

January 3, 1812 ~  Philippine Duchesne writes to her sister Euphrosine, "One of the wishes in which I find the greatest joy this New Year is that God may let me be helpful to my dear ones.  The thought of our home at Grane, sheltering so many people and things dear to me, is constantly in my mind,  since I know my loved ones there are suffering and I can do nothing to ease the pain."
