When was Fort de Chartres built?
Chassin: I wrote Father Bobé today. Even though he is very far from all this. Paris seems so, so far away!
All the same, I am becoming accustomed to this place. I will make a home here, very near to Fort de Chartres.
In my letter I confessed to Father Bobé something else. I wrote that I now lack only one thing to make a strong establishment here: a certain article of furniture that once one has it, one often repents having got that article--a wife!
