More instructions to Fr. Tempier for his visitation. Father Albini was a seminary professor and was sent to take a break in the country during the summer. This was as much to give him physical rest as to give him a break from Father Mie, his over-zealous co-worker who seemingly did not know how to rest and was always on the move.
I believe you have settled Fr. Albini out in the country, this being not only beneficial to his health but also a good way to spare him the company of Fr. Mie who would drive him mad.
A touch of realism, and humor, as Eugene speaks about the house in Aix.
Have no concern for the moment, if the cloister is violated by mother’s cook; there is a major reason to put up with her, that is, she has to teach Bro. Gibert to prepare meals; advise him to behave in a suitable manner towards her.
Letter to Henri Tempier, 16 July 1829, EO VII n 333
Mother’s cook must have been quite formidable and made her presence felt in the house! Poor Brother Gibert is advised to keep calm and not over-react!
