Those of de Frezin, Rouvroy, Crequi & du Moulin follow it. All of them must join the Count Mansfield. This city (NB: Vertogny) has gifted to Cardinal Infante some boxes of Rhine wine with golden corks…”

Paris, the 25th November, 1634: “On the 17th of the given month Sieur Biart, a Royal Sculptor, melted a bronze figure of 12 feet high. It represents a Galatea staying on a sea shell. There is a sea monster at her feet of 8 feet high. It is a rare masterpiece of an exceptional size & beauty that has ever been crafted in France…”

  1. Can you imagine how much money it would take to conduct a 30 years war? It must have taxed the people immensely.
