Title:
Recueil 1764-1770. Les discours, Tom. II [manuscript] / de la Sr. Marthe-Simplicité.
Abstract:
Spiritual journal with entries dated from 12 January 1764 to 7 November 1770; entries made at irregular intervals, occasionally daily, but more often with a week or several weeks intervening between entries. Dated entries describe events or letters received within a religious community of women, possibly Carmelite (f. 11v). Each entry concludes with a prayer or series of prayers or meditations. Describes and sometimes quotes letters received from Sr. Benjamin, who is suffering from serious illness. Illnesses of community members, including tuberculosis and intestinal illnesses, are described in some entries, along with descriptions of medical and herbal remedies.
