BOURDALOUE Louis (1632-1704) prédicateur
L.A.S. "Bourdalouë", Baville 14 October [1697, to Mme de CAUMARTIN]; 2 pages in-8.
He has just learned of "the disastrous accident which happened to one of the daughters of Madame la Comtesse de Guitaud [Virginie de Pechpeyrou-Comminges de Guitaut (1675-1697)]; and as I have no doubt that you are not in yourself deeply touched, I cannot dispense myself from testifying to you the part I take in your pain and in his. If I dare, I beg you to assure him of this the first time you write to him. For I always keep all the respect and consideration for her that she deserves, and I can tell you that I have felt it on this occasion, in a way that she herself will be glad, if in her affliction, something can comfort her. At least I have discharged before God the most essential duty which she must have expected of me - by offering the sacrifice of the Mass for her today.
