Esteemed Readers, it is the end of the year, so here are some brief but extraordinary tidings of the Thirty Years’ War period (1618-1648). On my behalf, I wish you the year like these news: full of entrances & treasure discoveries! Happy New Year!
Entrance of Sieur de Saint Chamont at the town Aix de Provence:
“On the tenth of the previous month he entered there guiding six hundred Gentlemen: there were most honorable Seigneurs of the province among them. People were joyful & welcomed them cheerfully. If anybody doubts about their zeal on the Royal duty, he is badly informed of the local affairs…”
Discovery of a marble quarry :
“In brief, I’m going to tell you something that must push France of to-day to reveal all its miracles. One of them will make Italy jealous for certain. I mean a marble quarry full of white, black & red jasper solid stone discovered in the parish of Iugné, province of Main at the banks of the river Sarte a short while ago. Some columns (12 feet height & 2 feet diameter) have already been cut from them. The nature learns the Frenchmen that is their land is needed to their neighbours, they will be able to satisfy their own needs…”
Vive le Roy!🎄🥂🎄 Good bye 1634! Welcome 1635!
The marble discovery is indeed a good thing. We won’t have to march on Italy to finish all the bathrooms in France. Happy New Year, Dear Maria.🎊🥂
😂😂😂 So true, dear John! Thank you!
