Brown flannel scapular with holy pictures and inscription in French, worn in the belief that it would protect children. Beneath an image of a grave and hearts, the inscription says 'Sacred hearts of Jesus and Mary protect us.' The second picture is of the Virgin of Mount Carmel, and the text below asks her to remember her children.
