Letter from Lucie to Alfred Dreyfus dated 9.05.1895

"I share your suffering, your torment, my poor darling; I would give my life to soothe you. I know as you do that convictions are useless. Since the unhappy day when you, poor innocent man, were convicted, I have looked at the situation straight on. I have never deluded myself. As I said to you during our last meetings, no matter how convinced our circle is, no matter how esteemed your are by your friends, the damage has been done, and there is only one way to put it right: by clearing your name. We shall do it, I am sure of it, and your rehabilitation will be as resounding as the accusation was monstrous."
