Autograph letter signed to Marie-Louise Terrasse, also known as Catherine Langeais. Stain on the first page, for which Mitterrand apologizes. "I have the big flaw of not being obedient... Mitterrand desperate to not see his love.My beloved Marie-Louise, This bad cold that I have been dragging for a few days is becoming more demanding. It does not give me any respite. And as the physical affects the morale, I am a little melancholic today. It is unbearable to be separated from you. I can't seem to be truly happy without you.
If this continues, which I hope and believe it will, it promises you the constant inconvenience of my presence. I told you "I will spend my time looking at you," I was only half lying: the other half of the time, I will close my eyes and savor your presence. You must have found me very tyrannical the other day! I did not obey you at all! My darling, do not think that it will be like this for many things, I know that you are right and will be right, and I will try to give you everything you ask of me: our love will be enough and will help us weigh the good and the bad of each thing.
And then, my little girl, you know very well that I have the big flaw of not being obedient. Should I try to correct myself?Last night, I wrote to your mother. I told her that I would probably go see her on Wednesday. Unfortunately, tomorrow's free time is problematic. However, I would really like to clarify the situation as soon as possible.
In any case, I will be able to go out starting at 5:15 p. So, I definitely plan on seeing you, as agreed, from 6 p.My beloved, it is impossible for me to remain without seeing you. I am waiting for that moment when I will finally be happy. To your mother, when I see her, I will tell her what I have often confided to you: that I know it is her duty to worry about you, that her fears are natural, that I only ask to explain myself: I love you and want the right to see you. Your mother wrote to me: "we will get along very well.
" I strongly desire it, but I will never accept to stop our meetings: that would deny my love. My Marie-Louise, this morning the mail was disappointing for me: nothing, no long-awaited blue envelope.
Have you been very busy at home? You know that I need you and that a day without you is a missed day.
My darling, I really hope to have tomorrow the proof of your love: it is necessary for me. The Sunday tête-à-tête did not put you in any danger. I love you so much, my darling, that the mere thought of choosing anyone other than you, even for a moment, cannot come to mind.And you are my little fiancée whom I adore. Nothing else matters to me outside of you. I am continuing this letter at the canteen: in front of me a glass of white wine! Do not think that I am descending into alcoholism! But I am really tired and I need support, especially since I had to carry a machine gun mount on my shoulders for a good part of the morning: that did not put me in a very fresh state! My dear little Zou, quickly give me your news: otherwise I will believe that the only young man from the Christmas tree has intervened, not without success. My dearest, I am ending this letter, see you tomorrow. I am unhappy without you. Tell me quickly that you love me: it is now my reason for living. And when I think of the long hours that will pass between this one, where I am writing to you, and the one where I will hear and read your love, I cannot help but be terribly sad.
My dearest, I love you, that's all. No, that's not all: I adore you. Oops, someone clumsily spilled water on my letter, forgive me!Her real name was Marie-Louise Terrasse. She met François Mitterrand on January 28, 1938, at the ball of the École normale supérieure, and even though she was only 15 years old, they got engaged.
