"You are well! You think of me! You will always love me. I believe you: now I am happy. I live again. How impatiently I waited for your letter! I am sure my hands trembled when opening it. My countenance changed; my voice altered. I was just at that moment about to send you a letter expressing my great uneasiness. While you are amusing yourself, you forget how much my heart suffers...
Adieu, my dearest love. My affection for you is ardent and sincere. I would love you even more than I do, if I knew how."
- written to Sophie Volland, Au Grandval, Oct 20, 1759 by Denis Diderot
