Fast forward several months (okay, a year) and we reach December 1918, and this card sent to Louis by his wife, Amelie. As mentioned previously, Louis was a soldier and by this time World War One had only been over for little more than a month.
I suppose this is the most overtly romantic of the cards – or at least one that lets us peek into the relationship between these two.
Je souhaite de tout coeur que soit la dernière année que tu passe loing de nous … Nous sommes tous en parfaite sante et je desire que tu soit ainsi.
(I sincerely hope that is the last year you pass away from us … We are all in perfect health and I desire that you be so also.)
