Jules MAZARIN (1602-1661).
Letter signed "Le Cardl Mazarini", to the marquis de Castelnau, "marshal of the camps and armies of the King, governor of Brest, in Flanders". ½ p. infol., Paris August 1, 1648, addressed with red wax seals with arms on pink silk lakes. He received a letter informing him of the Marshal de Rantzau's plan to try to force one of the enemy camps in Furnes: "It is a thing that I would not dare to hope would succeed, although you do not doubt, I am sure, that I do not wish them with all the more passion as it is a post that I have always considered as the boulevard of our places of the sea, & of which you will be able to remember in which way I spoke to you at your departure. That is why it is necessary to save it. I am certain that you will not forget yourself there & that you will assist the said Sr. Maral with your usual zeal & vigor. If this cannot be done, we must think of something else.
