Yves Goasdoue documents

[year unknown]

Les Prevosts, St Saviours le 22 Mars [no year]

Dear Celeste

I am writing these few lines to you so that you will know that we are all doing well here. Yesterday which was the day after your departure my mother was pretty bad you know why, I scolded her and it’s all gone well since. Mrs Gerard came yesterday and she has put everything in order. The little ones are very well. Its a pleasure their health is very good.

I hope you had a good trip and that you weren’t too sick. I hope that you had a moment with your sisters [sic] and that they are all well, give them my regards.

I received the paper from the sale of the property and I can see that you won’t be there for the sale but it doesn’t matter it won’t make a difference. So, darling Celeste I fret without you, I hope thay you will be able to come Tuesday to St Malo, waiting to receive your news as I have no more to tell you. I close with a big kiss from afar, while waiting to do so up close. Yves who does not forget you.

My dear brother

I am writing since I have received nothing from you. I received yesterday [news from] home but from you nothing. I send only these [few lines] because communication is very bad at the moment and letters take a long time to reach us.

Now my health is quite good, I get up out of bed a little every day. One of these days I hope to be in France, I assure you I am very restless here. Goodbye, see you soon, keep well and good luck
Jean Baptiste
