Here you will find, Miss, the small books and also the bracelet belonging to Mrs. de La Croix. I had stored them so tightly that I almost could not find them. Please bring my apologies to our friend for the books that I kept such a long time with me.
Many thanks also to the zealous secretary the obliging mannequin(?) who is rewarded, I am sure, for her self sacrifice and faithfulnes, hence the gratefulness of all others for whom she acts by the impulsion of a kindness which is all but mechanical (unconscious?)
Please accept, Miss, together with Mme de La Crois, my respectful compliments.
