Letters of Maria Celeste:

14 April 1630

Most Beloved Lord Father

I have no doubt whatsoever of your readiness, Sire, to send me most willingly all that I asked you for the other day; but in the unfortunate event that your memory may have failed you, I thought it wise to remind you of the flask of wine, the two buttermilk cheeses, and that other item to have after the roast meat; not lemons, or rosemary, as you said, Sire, but something fundamental according to my tastes for tomorrow morning at the hour when the Nuns dine. That is, we will be expecting you, Sire, together with my Sister-in-law and Vincenzio, just as you promised us. And meanwhile, praying to Our Lord for the fulfillment of your every desire, we send you loving regards.

The 14th day of April 1630.

Your most affectionate daughter,
S. Maria Celeste
