Subject

Madagascar

Description

Letter from the nuncio to France, Celio Piccolomini to PF, stating that he will talk to the Marshal de la Meilleraye, as the prefect has ordered in his letter dated the 15 October. The nuncio will also explain to him why PF is not willing to appoint a bishop in partibus. Since the person who was the Marshal's first choice already died, the nuncio hopes that he will readily except that things will be done as they have been in the past [i.e. that a vicar apostolic will be appointed instead of a bishop].
