My dear Cosette, 

    My darling, you are the best thing that God has ever-gave to me, i've cherished every-day that you gave me when you were in my company, your father left me flat, his name was Felix Tholomyes, i thought he was the love of my life, so i know that you will find me a very cruel mother for telling you all of this, but it's was i wanted to tell you for a long time now i just waited tooo long to tell you the truth about your life and how you got her, 


your loving mother Fantine
