November 10, 1852 ~ Mother Duchesne writes to St. Madeleine Sophie Barat, "I come to say farewell to you, though God alone knows the moment when death will come. There is much I should like to say to you about the suffering I have caused you - if you were less indulgent and I were in a condition to express myself better. But God has humbled my pride by loss of memory and continual forgetfulness. I humbly beg pardon for all the suffering I have caused you. I think I shall never do so again."
