Mlle Souvestre to Mrs Strachey

Scope and Content

Her dear visitor has gone and she can only dwell on the memories left behind which with a dearly loved person is almost as satisfying as the actual presence as long as no alien ideas are allowed to break up the enchantment. Lady Colville has just left them; Lina has accompanied her to Paris where they are to stay 24 hours. For her part she will stay and recall the past 'je revivre at je me retrouverai anisi avoir encore la bonne part'.
