Description

Minutes of PF general meeting of 18 February 1658 discussing among other issues, a letter about the great rise of pious initiatives in France, by a certain Du Plessis. He writes about several successes: how Jansenism is being fought, that there are French missions in the Levant, on the British Isles, in America and Canada, on the Barbary Coast, and in the regions of Picardy and Champagne. Parishes are flourishing, as does the "charity of the Ladies" [the Ladies of Charity?]. Small companies grow, people are trying to abolish duels and swearing. The much desired general hospital has been established, and the poor are being cared for in Paris. The cardinals decide to ask more information about the content and authority of the letter.
