1/21/2014 9:14 AM Dear Henri,
We have received your letter and have been very happy to learn that you arrived safely in Paris, and I will immediately put your mind at rest, we keep very happy memories of my godson, and I dare hope that a friendly correspondence between us will confirm and strengthen our first meeting.
I am very happy to see that you liked your stay at Roanne, and as to what we did for you, anyone in our place would have done the same, because I had accepted to be a godmother to a godson in captivity and I reckon that we had to treat you as if you were part of our family.
Don't thank us, it was wholly natural, and it is we who are glad to have been able to offer you a few hours of happiness and relaxation with the family; you, who are without news from your family, and we fervently hope that you receive some reassuring news from them soon.
At home we speak often about you and we remember the 2 days we spent together.
Mother left this morning to make the arrangements for the wedding and father and I will join her on Friday to try and spend 2 or 3 days together and, truly, it will be well into the holidays by then.
And you, do you have any hope of finding something soon; keep us posted, it will please us to receive news from you.
Mr. Schafranek, who keeps a happy memory of your visit, asks me to give you his regards, as well as Jean, who sends you his friendly greetings.
I hope that my letter will find you in good health in spite of the oppressive heat that we still have.
Receive from the three of us our affectionate greetings and I sign off, as always, your godmother, Jeanne.

This is a translation of both pages of the letter.
Hoope this has helped you.
