The back of the postcard features a message written by Bishop Alfred LePailleur to his grandparents, Alfred-Narcisse and Philomène, sent some time before his departure for India (translated):
Mr. and Mrs. A.N
My dear Grand-Parents,
It is a little Indian who comes to greet you, before leaving the big cities of Europe. He often thinks of you, loves you very much and asks the Lord to bless you, as you bless. Ah! yes, bless me, as I do with all my priestly soul.
Your missionary nephew,
