Mazarini", Paris 30 January 1658, to the Duke of LONGUEVILLE, Governor of Normandy in Rouen; 1 page in-4, address with red wax stamps with arms on pink silk lakes (wetness and browning, some holes).
. "I have been very happy to see that in the Province all things go as well as one could wish for the service of the King.
But it seems to me that the people for whom I have worked with His Mathew must be a little more courageous to come and receive the effects of the grace I have given them, and to cover themselves with all that has been reported to His Mathew about their conduct, not doubting that if one had wanted to make them feel the King's indignation, one could not have done so without encountering the slightest difficulty. However, I am very happy to have used it as I did with His Mate to excite his kindness towards them, and I will continue to do so, provided that they do not ostentate me with the means.
[For] the troops, I will do everything that can depend on the means with regard to the lodging of Montivilliers and other places. Mais il seroit bon que vous seroit bon que vous prendre la peine de faire dire à Monsieur Morand qu'il en escrivist en tout à Mr le Tellier, car si on peut seuretété pour le payment lon apportera tout sorte de facilité au reste".
