He arrived yesterday at four o'clock, very tired, very thin, having suffered a detestable time, finally, here he is at the dovecote, I will pamper him well and we will try to do better. I am surprised that you have 40 / Osenat / summer three days without letters from me, I have not been this time without writing to you, and there is some epistle of arrêté. I wrote to you on Sunday for our sad crate that is not arriving, I ask my friend Lanthenas[the future conventional François-Xavier Lanthenas, close to the Rolands] to see if it was part of it, and to have some revelation, in one way or another. I receive his answer to my Anglois and this awful news of the stagecoach in Bordeaux, it freezes the blood in the veins and makes people shiver with horror. We are in a hurry not to have the time to read your letters as we wish, we will take them back today and we will answer them, this one is only a hello, health, joy, friendships to you both. "One of the leading figures of the Revolution, Madame Roland played a prominent role with her husband Jean-Marie Roland de La Platière, who, at the time Inspector General of Manufactures, was Minister of the Interior (1792-1793): highly educated, passionate about botany, author of several articles, she held a political salon where the Girondins attended. It was guillotined in 1793.
