Stamp Information : It all began in Lyons, France, in the splintered heart of an 18 year old girl, a girl who lived through the brutalities and want on destruction of the French Revolution. On January 27, 1842 the chosen band of inheritors of Claudin's spirit left for India; a group of five French nuns and an Irish novice. The Journey from Marseilles to Agra lasted 10 months owing to several mishaps. They entered Bombay harbour on June 3, 1842 but sailed again to go round the Sub continent. On November 13, 1842 the sisters reached Agra and immediately took up their mission.
