The full title of the publication is "Daily Conversation with God, Exemplified in the Holy Life of Armelle Nicolas, Commonly call'd the Good Armelle; A Poor Ignorant Country Maid in France." Published in English translation in many editions in the 1700s, this pamphlet was a popular religious text.
Popularly known as "La bonne Armelle" (1606-1671), the subject of the pamphlet was a saintly French serving-maid who was held in high veneration among French people in the 1600s. Born in 1606, she spent her life in piety and extreme hard work, both in service and at an Ursuline monastery, where details of her spiritual life were recorded. She died in 1671 but was never canonized.
